According to the Pioneer Press' Jeremy Fowler, the Vikings are not expected to be serious players in the Eric Weddle sweepstakes.
This is a big blow, as the Vikings have the worst safety group in the NFL. Connecting the obvious dots, the team's trade for Donovan McNabb will most certainly handcuff an already-strapped team even further. While we're still awaiting the terms of a restructured McNabb contract, it's safe to assume that the 34-year old veteran quarterback will be the team's only real splash. Expect Bernard Berrian, Madieu Williams and others to join Jimmy Kennedy in the unemployment line as soon as today.
