Wouldn’t it be fun to have a linebacker named Rocky on the roster?
Yeah, I agree.
On Tuesday, reports surfaced that the Vikings brought in veteran linebacker Rocky McIntosh for a workout. McIntosh could end up joining seventh round pick Audie Cole, CFL standout Solomon Elimimian, and undrafted rookie Tyler Nielson in Rick Spielman’s effort to solidify the linebacker depth.
McIntosh is 29 years old and played all six of his NFL seasons with the Redskins. He has racked up 471 tackles, eight sacks, eight forced fumbles, and three interceptions. Last year, in Washington’s 3-4 defense, McIntosh saw his production slip off and he lost his starting spot.
McIntosh could provide solid depth at every linebacker spot and also be a solid special teams contributor. Don’t be surprised if McIntosh is offered a one-year (you guessed it) “prove it” deal by Rick Spielman.
