Fred Evans Stays a Viking

If you were worried about Fred Evans leaving the Vikings…well, you can sleep now.  Fred has signed the $1.545 million tender the Vikings offered him.  It wasn’t like he was going to get a better offer somewhere else anyway.  Fred and Jimmy Kennedy are insurance in case Pat and Kevin Williams get chopped for four games by the NFL for not knowing how to read labels.  Fred appeared in all 16 games for the Vikes last year, starting in place of Fat Pat for the last two, when Fat Pat had a bum shoulder.  Evans amassed 16 tackles last year for – math majors? – a 1 tackle-per-game average.  Fred appears to have gotten over whatever was eating him when, in 2007, he got drunk and bit some cops, forcing them to taser him.

    A rumor says Chilly is looking solely to recrut new players only at convents and monestaries.
