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.
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.
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.
