This isn’t the kind of free agency update Viking fans were hoping for. Nope, Erin Henderson’s not about to get a new deal. Brandon Carr is not on the radar screen. There’s nothing to report except that Rick Spielman wants to get younger and build with the draft. That’s what he just got done saying on the radio. He probably mutters that to himself all night in his sleep. His wife must want to punch him.
So with no news to report on current or potentially future Vikings, we turn to former Vikings looking for work elsewhere. Here’s something on a guy who left town during the mini-purge of 2011. Ben Leber. He got a work out from the Eagles. He played for the Rams last year until they cut him. At this point the 33-year-old Leber is looked upon as a back-up option. He was a solid player for the Vikings when they had a decent defense. Now they have a weak defense with a really overpaid guy at strong-side linebacker. But at least they’re GETTING YOUNGER.
