The Vikings got a jump start on the crossroads they knew they would face at the tight end position when the drafted Kyle Rudolph in the second round of last year’s Draft.

This year, they still have to fill some needs at the position, and for now they reportedly have fixed their eyes on former Seahawks tight end John Carlson.

According to this tweet from PFT, the Vikings are not the only team interested in the veteran tight end.  The Colts, Bucs, Bears, Cowboys, and Seahawks have all been in contact while he is set to visit the Chiefs first.

Carlson has never truly lived up to his potential, but it seems most football minds agree that, at the very least, the potential is still there.
