The Vikings are having about as much luck signing a defensive end this off-season as Klinger had getting kicked out of the army. First it was Justin Smith, then Antwan Odom, then Travis LaBoy…and now Jevon Kearse has told the Vikings thanks but no thanks.
Kearse, who was cut by the Eagles earlier this off-season, has decided to return to the team he began with, the Tennessee Titans. Terms have not been disclosed, but I’m assuming the contract was laden with incentives. Kearse had been scheduled to visit the Vikings after leaving Tennessee.
This leaves Vikings fans wondering what the hell we’re going to do at defensive end. The latest name to surface is Corey Smith of the Lions. He had a total of 4 1/2 sacks the last two years in Detroit. He’s the sort of guy you sign for depth, not to start.
