Report: Minnesota Vikings Reach Out To George Selvie

Tim Heitman-USA TODAY Sports

Add another pass rusher to the list of names that the Minnesota Vikings have apparently reached out to during the "legal tampering" stage of the free agency process.

Ben Goessling of ESPN is reporting that the Vikings have expressed interested in Dallas Cowboys' defensive end George Selvie.

Selvie was drafted in the seventh round of the 2010 NFL Draft (#226 overall) by the St. Louis Rams. He has done a significant amount of bouncing around the NFL, as he's played for five different teams in five seasons. He was with the Rams in 2010, split time in 2011 between the Carolina Panthers and Jacksonville Jaguars. He played in 2012 with the Jaguars as well, and was briefly with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in 2013 before signing with the Cowboys.

Selvie racked up seven sacks in his first season with the Cowboys, but had just three this past season. He's held up fairly well against the run during his two seasons with Dallas.

This would appear to be more of a "depth" signing than anything else, but as we saw with Tom Johnson last season, sometimes a signing that appears to be a "depth" signing can turn out to be significantly more.
