He may not be the big name cornerback or safety that a lot of Vikings fans were hoping for, but the Vikings made a move to solidify their offensive line on the first day of free agency.

Backup guard and center Joe Berger has returned to the team to act as a backup and compete for the starting job at left guard.  Berger has proven himself as a solid commodity for the Vikings, being able to step in when need and play at a high level.  His ability to play either center or guard make him even more of an asset.

Although the numbers on the deal aren’t out, it looks to be a one year deal.  Still, it’s good to know that the Vikings are looking for some stability with a familiar face on the offensive line.
