It appears Jimmy Kennedy will be cut by the Vikings. The defensive tackle just tweeted:
Viking fans, Thank you for accepting me as your own, but Im sorry to imform you I AM NO LONGER With the Team. I love you guys. Be kool
Releasing Kennedy would trim $2.5 million from the payroll for the Vikings. This may or may not increase the chances of Pat Williams being retained. There have also been rumors that the Vikes are interested in Bears DT Anthony Adams. The Vikings drafted Christian Ballard but he lacks the size to play nose tackle.
The next few days could see other significant changes with the Vikings’ defensive personnel, including the departures of Madieu Williams and Ben Leber.
