DeMarcus Love is just finishing up his 4-game suspension for performance enhancing drugs, but will not return to the team. Instead, the team has planned to move on with their new swing tackle, J’Marcus Webb.
Love was a former 6th round draft pick of the Minnesota Vikings back in 2011. Although he never appeared in a regular-season game for the Vikings, they were hoping to develop him into the team’s swing tackle. After acquiring former Bears offensive tackle J’Marcus Webb from free agency this year, Love’s spot was in doubt even without the suspension.
The Vikings would have been required to release one player on the current roster to bring Love back to the team. Since he was on suspension, he did not count against Minnesota’s roster.
We at The Viking Age wish DeMarcus Love only the best going forward with his career and thank him for his time in Minnesota.
