Keeping track of Vikings FA's

So, I thought I would make a post where I kept track of the status of the Vikings free agents. I will be linking to the reports that give the signing team on the name of the signing team. Feel free to comment if you hear anything about the free agents I have listed here (or to tell me I have missed a player).

Of the remaining free agents, I could see the Vikings re-signing Jerome Simpson (though I would prefer they move on), Joe Berger, Larry Dean (ST depth), and POSSIBLY Chris Cook. Fred Evans is a maybe, but I think they can find a better player in FA and the Vikings can likely find a much better player than Evans that will be much more consistent than him, too.

Now that I look at the free agents we are losing, I wouldn't mind resigning Jerome Simpson, because we are a little thinner at WR than I would like. Actually, it wouldn't surprise me if the Vikings spent a third or fourth round draft pick on a WR this year, because they could use some additional depth behind Jennings, Patterson, and Wright. Will be an interesting day, Tuesday.

Let me know in the comments who you believe the Vikings will resign this offseason.
