Any “penciled in” free agency deals have yet to be reported regarding the Minnesota Vikings, but reports of their intent and unconfirmed rumors persist just enough that we feel safe in predicting that Rick Spielman won’t frustrate everybody by simply sitting this one out like our foes to the east are known to do on an annual basis.
In the last couple of days the Vikings have taken steps to retain a select few of their own. Exclusive rights free agents Zac Kerin and Jeremiah Sirles have both been tendered. Also, the Vikings tendered restricted wide out Adam Thielen at the second round level, as expected.
What has yet to transpire, however, is anything of certainty suggesting the Vikings have sealed the deal with any outside talent. Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports that the Vikings have expressed interest in free agent nose tackle Domata Peko and also that the team may end up reaching out to quarterback Nick Foles.
