Bernard Berrian has no future in Minnesota, right? The 30-year-old wideout is set to cost $3.9 million in 2011, which is too much to pay a guy coming off a 28-catch, 252-yard season. And those are tB. Berrian (US Presswire)he numbers he put up despite starting nine games and playing with Brett Favre.

So it’s safe to assume that once the lockout ends, Berrian will be axed. Unless, of course, we’re to believe Leslie Frazier. As the owners meetings this past week, the Vikings head coach spoke as if the lanky veteran will be back.

"We need to get him up to speed," Frazier said, according to ESPN’s Kevin Seifert. "He's a talented guy. He can run with the best in the league and he did put up some big numbers for us a couple of years ago. So we've got to get him back in the fold and get him to where he's a major contributor to our offense. We're going to need him this next season in a big way.”

Frazier apparently has shared these sentiments with Berrian.

"I talked to him just about that," Frazier said. "[About] how important it's going to be for him to step up and be a featured player in our offense in order for us to get to where we want to go as an organization. So he understands what's ahead and what he has to do and I'm looking forward to when he gets back. Just seeing a renewed attitude and coming back with some vigor and really trying to have a great season."

So do we believe Frazier? Or is this just something a team says when it’s hoping to trade a guy?

Would Vikings actually keep Bernard Berrian?

I would'nt keep B-Twice if he signed a contract that forced him to start paying the organization back some of the millions he "earned" already. I would'nt keep him if he promised to start "trying" to catch the football. Bernard Berrian is possibly the WORST free agent wide receiver signed by the Minnesota Vikings in history. It's too late for this Vikings fan, even if Bernard Berrian did both of the things mentioned above AND promised to never again appear on Chad Johnson's reality TV show, wasting his time helping another man decide which skank to put his Ocho Cinco in....I STILL WOULD'NT KEEP HIM! The guy has no heart, no drive, no will to do well. This is a guy who has been seen not even raising his arms in the end zone when a pass is coming his way, who UNTOUCHED fumbles the football, no LATERALS the football to the opposing team in his own Red Zone in the NFC Championship game. I hope, I pray, that I never have to see this pathetic excuse for an athelete get paid to play this game again.......unless it's for the Packers.
