Husain Abdullah Mulling Contract Offer From Vikings

The Minnesota Vikings have made an offer to one of their own free agents. . .and, no, it isn't linebacker Erin Henderson.

According to Jeremy Fowler of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings have extended a contract offer to safety Husain Abdullah, who has spent his entire NFL career to this point with the Vikings.

Abdullah has been the rare Vikings' safety that has performed fairly well over the past couple of seasons, and is the beneficiary of one of the best damn nicknames that we've come up with here at DN. (For the uninitiated, that would be "Abdullah Oblongata.") Speaking of his oblongata, among other parts, the main concern with Abdullah has been the concussion issue, as he has suffered four of them over the last two seasons, and missed the last four weeks of the 2011 season because of the most recent one.

A concussion specialist in Pittsburgh cleared Abdullah to resume his football career, and the issue would probably allow the Vikings to get him back at a decent price. If the team is comfortable enough with him to offer him a deal to come back, then I think it's a decent deal for Minnesota to bring him back.

What say you, Minnesota Vikings faithful?
