Vikings fans are used to being patient.
This team seems to always wait until the very last moment before making transactions. Whether it signing draft picks, re-signing their own free agents, or jumping into free agency itself, they always keep us waiting. Heck, one time they waited so much, they forgot to make a first round selection.
Things are expected to start happening this weekend, however, so I want to make sure you are plenty prepared for the action and know what to expect. Below are the links to my position-by-position breakdown of how I see this Vikings offseason playing out:
In the linebackers preview, I project that the team will try hard to retain linebacker Erin Henderson and it appears that they will do just that over the next week or so according to multiple reports like this one.
In the section about the quarterbacks, I predicted that the Vikings will probably bring back Sage Rosenfels to round out their depth chart. There is a recent rumor floating about that the Vikings and Rosenfels have mutual interest in making his return happen.
In the cornerbacks preview, I mistakenly (undoubtedly due to a lack of research and excess of scotch) thought Marcus Trufant was an unrestricted free agent. This was not true… but it will be soon. PFT reports that the Seahawks will release Trufant and his $7.2 million salary soon. So, let’s just pretend I saw that coming and knew what I was talking about all along, okay?
