Sherels is not only a dynamic punt returner who is always a threat to bring it back to the house, but he also is a very good backup cornerback and special teamer.  He adds a lot of value to the team and was one of their top priorities entering free agency.

There’s no word yet on the length or value of his deal, but it is good to know that he’ll be back as a part of the Vikings for at least this season.

    Great choice Spielman. We already know what he can do as a punt returner, and watching last year he was good in coverage when given his chance to start. Smart signing Vikes.

      Agreed. Excellent punt returner, and he has improved his abilities at CB every year. I can’t wait to see how well he’ll do with a coach who’s known for developing defenses.
