Vikings Newcomer No. 3

David Quessenberry - OT

The Vikings picked up ol' Q-Bear at the cut deadline after he was released by the Buffalo Bills in late August.

He wasn't the typical Kwesi Adofo-Mensah signing, as he was 33-years-old and a player who was entering the twilight of his career.

Adofo-Mensah tends to like younger players who haven't lived up to their potential and are coming off of their rookie contracts. So, while David Quessenberry was the opposite, he was also a very valuable addition.

Quessenberry filled in at both right and left tackle during the season, and he did quite well.

He stepped in for left tackle Christian Darrisaw against the Philadelphia Eagles' ferocious defensive line in Week 2 and held his own.

He later filled in on the right side for Brian O'Neill, and the drop-off in play and protection was minimal.

The Vikings should look to bring Quessenberry back. They need some veteran depth at the tackle position, and he proved he can step up to the task when called upon.

The only thing that could stand in the way of this reunion is Quessenberry himself.

Perhaps he doesn't want to put his 33-year-old body through another rigorous season of football. Maybe an extra million or two can convince him for one more ride in purple.
