Yet another Viking could be on his way to the Pacific Northwest. According to John Clayton there are currently four teams in on free agent linebacker Ben Leber, one being the Seahawks who already this off-season have signed Sidney Rice and Tarvaris Jackson. The other three teams aren’t identified by Clayton but the way things have been going, one of them is probably the Eagles.
Chances of the Vikings re-signing Leber have been viewed as slim for most of the off-season, and with the Vikings still scrambling to get under the salary cap, those chances are probably down to less than slim. Erin Henderson is seen as the front-runner to replace Leber but reportedly Jasper Brinkley, who I always thought of as more of a middle linebacker, has been getting work on the weak side as well. Rookie Ross Homan is possibly in the mix also.
