Vikings Open OTA’s, WCMP To Interview Jared Allen

Tuesday, May 28th, 2013 at 7:01 am

The Minnesota Vikings begin their OTA’s this week, and lots of questions are bubbling up; most notably, on defense. How will coach Leslie Frasier settle the questions at linebacker? For now it looks like Erin Henderson will move to the middle. But with Chad Greenway entrenched on the strong side, who will the team use as the weakside backer? We may get a glimpse at the team’s plan here this week.

As far as defensive linemen go, rookie DT Sharrif Floyd will be a welcomed addition but basically the rest of the line is entering the final year of their contracts. Jared Allen, Kevin Williams, Brian Robison, Fred Evans and Everson Griffen are all up for free agency, after the season. Of course Allen won’t be participating in the optional OTA’s this week, and that’s his normal routine. Allen will be on with our Jesse Logan at some point today talk about this weekend’s Pine City Bull Ride at Heidelbergers, so stay tuned…
