A few quick hitters related to some Vikings free agents:
Don’t expect Fred Evans back. The Vikings gave Letroy Guion a 3-year deal for $3 million per with an eye toward making him the starting nose tackle. Remi Ayodele will be the primary back-up. Evans’ departure is expected to reduce by half the Vikings’ number of offsides penalties.
The Vikings have no offer on the table for Erin Henderson. He is out there testing the market right now with no notion of what the Vikings think he’s worth. There is evidently some disagreement within the Vikings organization over Henderson’s value. Fred Pagac apparently loves him but Mike Singletary isn’t sold. This begs the question: Who gives a crap what Mike Singletary thinks about anything?
Visanthe Shiancoe has a visit lined up with Seattle. Darrell Bevell, Tarvaris Jackson and Sidney Rice are already there. Steve Hutchinson could also be returning to the Pacific Northwest. The 2008 Vikings are slowly being reassembled in Seattle. Maybe Bernard Berrian should give those guys a call. Just kidding, no one wants him.
