In the entry just before this one, CJ referenced a report speculating that the Philadelphia Eagles may be considering whether or not Vikings DE Ray Edwards, a restricted free agent (RFA) with a 1st round tender, would be worth swiping from the Vikings.
CJ also then broke down the Vikings options moving forward should Edwards sign with Philadelphia.
If this report from NFL.com’s Jason La Canfora is accurate, there’s another member of the Vikings defensive line who could have left town for another team but has instead decided to stick around. According to La Canfora, DT Jimmy Kennedy has re-signed with the Vikings.
After visiting with the Buffalo Bills this week and openly desiring a starting role somewhere, Kennedy has decided to return to the Vikings, where his role may not be a starting one but is important nonetheless. Kennedy is a frequent sub in the Vikings defensive line, a unit that features fellow DTs Kevin Williams and Pat Williams. Many times Kennedy comes in to spell Pat Williams, specifically in passing situations.
We’ve reached out to the appropriate people within the organization but have not been able to confirm La Canfora’s report. If and when we receive confirmation, we’ll let you know.
