Just coming across the wire from the St. Paul Pioneer Press.

The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed linebacker Erin Henderson too a one-year, $2 million deal, according to a person with direct knowledge of the situation.

In his first year as a starter, Henderson recorded 70 tackles, 1-1/2 sacks and two forced fumbles.

(No, I don't actually have a wire. It's just a cool, news-related thing to say.)

Wow. . .I'm not a sports agent or a cap guru or anything like that, nor do I claim to be. But damn, that seems like a really, really low number, doesn't it?

Again, I'm not a huge fan of the one-year contract, and I don't know why the Vikings didn't go for a longer-term deal. . .maybe they're still skeptical about Henderson the Younger's ability to take on a larger role in the defense, maybe this is something that Henderson wanted, I don't know. Hopefully someone will shed some light on this as the day wears on.

But, after some wrangling, some weeping, and some gnashing of teeth, Erin Henderson is back in Minnesota. I see this as a positive. . .what do you folks think?
