With Tim Tebow attempting to make a comeback in the NFL at tight end, which former Minnesota Vikings players could possibly return to the team at a different position?

Over the years, there have been several Minnesota Vikings players to walk through the team’s doors with some pretty high expectations.

Some of these players have been able to meet or exceed these expectations, while others didn’t even come close to sniffing what some felt they were capable of.

It’s hard to determine exactly why some of the Vikings‘ former players failed to meet their expectations. Some might have been thrown into the fire too early, and there is even a possibility that some of them were just playing a position that didn’t give them the best chance to succeed.

Recently, former NFL quarterback Tim Tebow signed with the Jacksonville Jaguars to attempt a comeback at the age of 33. But Tebow won’t be competing for a spot on the quarterback depth chart. Instead, he will attempt to see if he can make the Jaguars roster as a tight end.

Looking at some former Minnesota players that recently departed from the team, who are some of the guys that might be able to earn a spot on an NFL roster if they switched positions like Tebow?
