Necessary Move

The Vikings today signed linebacker Dontarrious Thomas, giving themselves much needed depth at the position.  Thomas, we recall, played for the Vikes from 2004-2007, but left this off-season to sign a big free agent contract with San Francisco.  Thomas failed to stick with the Niners however and two weeks ago the Vikes brought him in for a workout.  The injury to David Herron yesterday, on top of E.J. Henderson being put on IR and his brother Erin suffering a concussion, put the Vikes in a bad position at linebacker.  Thomas obviously has knowledge of the system and can be plugged right in at MLB.
