The Vikings continue to do their homework on any and all players they think might help improve their roster. According to Aaron Wilson, the Vikings recently visited with former Miami Dolphins offensive tackle Will Yeatman.
The 26-year-old Yeatman played in 8 games for the Dolphins last season before tearing his ACL and landing on injured reserve. Yeatman is reportedly making good progress in his rehab and should be ready for training camp.
Yeatman, a 315-pound converted tight end, has also visited this offseason with the New York Jets and Houston Texans.
The Vikings figure to head into 2014 with the same five starting offensive linemen they featured in 2013, but they’ve done plenty of retooling beyond those top five players.
The biggest move was to draft David Yankey out of Stanford in the fifth round. The Vikings also brought in offensive guard Vlad Ducasse on a free agent contract. UDFA Antonio Richardson is another player who could find himself in the mix as a backup before it’s over.
2013 draft pick Jeff Baca likely figures in the picture somewhere as well.
