jarrad page

by -

As we wait to receive word on which, if any, Vikings free agents are retained prior to free agency starting on Tuesday, there is one guy we can pretty much scratch from the list with certainty.

We had mentioned a while back that safety Jarrad Page attended an open tryout with the Los Angeles Dodgers.  As it turns out, he wasn’t just doing it to kill time.

Reports have surfaced that Page, a once promising young NFL player, has signed a minor league contract with the Dodgers as an outfielder.

Strong safety Jarrad Page is a Vikings for at least about another week.

After bouncing around (and then bouncing around some more) the NFL over the last few years, it appears that Page may be executing Plan B for his career as a professional athlete.  On Thursday, Page reportedly attended an open tryout for Major League Baseball’s Los Angeles Dodgers.

Page played one year of baseball in college, and was drafted straight out of high school by the Milwaukee Brewers in the fifth round.  He was drafted twice more after that.

While no reports have surfaced stating the Vikings will not attempt to re-sign Page, who is set to become an unrestricted free agent, this news makes it pretty clear that he knows something that we don’t.
