The Minnesota Vikings have made some major moves in an effort to provide protection up front for quarterback Teddy Bridgewater, and that is continuing over night with a visit from right tackle Andre Smith reportedly taking place. However, they haven’t forgotten that Bridgewater also needs weapons around him and they are rumored to be cautiously window shopping for wide outs.
As I look over the list of remaining free agent pass catchers, one name clearly resides above the rest in my assessment, and that guy was on our roster very recently. I was really hoping to see Mike Wallace return for a second year in Minnesota, playing indoors and with more protection for his quarterback, but his release from Minnesota reportedly doesn’t make that second year an impossibility.
Ian Rapoport tweeted this weekend that Wallace’s return to Minnesota was still “on the table.” This comes along with news that Wallace will visit the Baltimore Ravens on Monday, but it is expected that the Ravens are not able or willing to spend a great deal of money for the services of the speedy Wallace.
