Former Minnesota Vikings Finding New Homes

New, comments

The Minnesota Vikings lost a bunch of guys in free agency, and some of them have found new homes over the course of the first few days of NFL free agency.

The first one was offensive lineman Steve Hutchinson, who signed a three-year deal with the Tennessee Titans yesterday. Hutchinson, who spent six seasons with the Vikings, might have been signed by the Titans in an attempt to help lure Peyton Manning to town, but a three-year deal tells me that the Titans think he has more left in the tank than the Vikings apparently thought he had.

Cedric Griffin, released by the Vikings last week, also found a new team, inking a one-year, $2.5 million deal with the Washington Redskins, who can apparently sign pretty much anybody they want at any time. Seriously, I don't know how they're doing it.

Lastly, linebacker/special teams ace Kenny Onatolu revealed via his Twitter account not long ago that he had signed a contract with the Carolina Panthers. I didn't see anything that disclosed the terms of the deal.

Congratulations to all three of those guys on finding new homes in free agency, and I'd like to thank them for what they contributed to the team during their time in Minnesota.
