Vikings Will Release Remi Ayodele
The decision to re-sign defensive tackles Letroy Guion and Fred Evans will make more sense to those that thought the moves made no sense at all (of which I was not one).
In light of the punishments being handed down by the NFL to those involved with the New Orleans Saints bounty scandal, the Vikings are expected to be in the process of releasing nose tackle Remi Ayodele.
No players, including Ayodele, have been punished individually yet, but the NFL is expected to do so relatively soon.
Just last week it appeared like the Vikings had every intention to keep Ayodele around when they paid a deferred portion of his $3.6 million signing bonus. It is not known if the actions taken by Ayodele in the past could result in the Vikings recovering any of the money they spent on what essentially turned out to be a horrible post-lockout free agent signing.
On the plus side, this move could be the first one the Vikings have made this offseason that won’t be met with criticism from the masses.
UPDATE: The Vikings have made the move official.
