Vikings Re-Sign LB Erin Henderson, 'Backing Off' Of WR Greg Jennings?
The Vikings have re-signed starting linebacker Erin Henderson to a two year deal, and apparently are backing away from free agent WR Greg Jennings, according to Tom Pelissero of 1500espn.com.
Henderson was a guy that didn't impress on the outside last year, but was better than the other free agent LB, Jasper Brinkley. Henderson eventually replaced Brinkley as the second linebacker opposite Chad Greenway in nickel situations last year, and Brinkley's playing time dropped off dramatically after that.
The other news is that as of now, the Vikings are walking away from the Greg Jennings negotiations, and it could be because the price has gotten too high:
ESPN's Jason Wilde tweets that according to a source the "#Packers had made an offer to [MENTION=3263]GREGJ[/MENTION]ennings "a while ago" that was worth about $10M per year."
If that's accurate, the Vikings woud be forced to have to overpay for Jennings, but with the release of Antoine Winfield there is cap space to do it while still addressing other needs, like middle linebacker and another receiver or two before the draft.
