Minnesota Vikings Training Camp: Vikings CB depth is suddenly a thing again

Minnesota Vikings Training Camp: Vikings CB depth is suddenly a thing again

Photo by Rob Leiter/ Early injuries and a lengthy suspension have raised depth concerns At the end of last season, the Vikings cornerback position, considered to be a pillar of strength on the roster, was stretched thin as injuries kept piling up to key players. Rookie Mike Hughes suffered a torn ACL in week six, and starters Trae Waynes and Xavier Rhodes suffered injuries at various points as well. Had it not been for the play of Mackensie Alexander and Holton Hill at the end of the season, the CB spot would have been flat out bad. It was thought that in the off-season everyone would...

Vikings to tryout free agent CB Orlando Scandrick

Xtina 1229, via Twitter The cornerback depth is thin again In light of the Holton Hill suspension doubling from four games to eight yesterday, the Minnesota Vikings brought in free agent CB Orlando Scandrick for a tryout.

Because substance abuse is a whole lot worse than beating the hell out of a toddler and then threatening the kid’s mother, amirite? Either way, the...
