Vikings Rumors: Cedric Griffin, Erin Henderson, Sage Rosenfels



Cedric Griffin


Tom Pelissero of the ESPN 1500 Twin Cities reports that the Minnesota Vikings CB Cedric Griffin has “no desire” redo his contract to remain with the team.

Griffin will make $4.1 million for the 2012 season which could make him a possible cap-casualty but the Vikings will have to address their secondary at some point during the offseason and Griffin could provide some added depth until they’re able to find a better solution.

Free agents Brandon Carr and Cortland Finnegan have been rumored to be options for the Vikings.




Erin Henderson


Pelissero also reports that the Vikings are currently in discussions with LB Erin Henderson regarding a reported two or three-year contract extension.

Minnesota is trying to keep their young linebackers in place and Henderson was surprisingly rated as the #4 best 4-3 outside linebacker in the league last year by Pro Football Focus. The fact that Henderson was a two-down player for the Vikings last season will most likely be reflected in his salary.




Sage Rosenfels


Jeremy Fowler tweets that the Vikings are interested in signing veteran QB Sage Rosenfels.

At this point in time, Rosenfels figures to be, at best, a third-string quarterback option. Minnesota already has Christian Ponder slotted as their starter while Joe Webb is expected to be the team’s backup next season. Rosenfels was on their roster a few years ago but the Vikings have to be hoping that he never sees any playing time.
