Here is twigstfor the Vikes and Erasmus James. It was ONLY 3 days ago that the Vikes waived James. But the paper work was not finalized in the NFL office. James was dealt to the Washington Redskins for a conditional seventh-round pick in the 2009 draft. A two-paragraph news release issued by the Vikings said the team, “originally waived James on May 23, but rescinded the transaction today and finalized the trade with Washington.” At least we got something for James it is better than nothing. ESPN reports that in order for the Vikings to get the pick James has to make the Redskins roster.Washington made this offer because they felt that James was going to be picked up off waivers. So this inclied them to make an offer to Vikes for him.
