A little Vikings news almost slid past us the other day. In the midst of the Vikings improving the offensive line by signing Charlie Johnson they have also signed offensive lineman Scott Kooistra. Kooistra, 30, has played in 84 career games with Cincinnati (2003 to ’09) and Baltimore (2010), starting one. It looks like he may be good insurance and depth to an o-line that truly is one or two injuries away from falling apart.
With the Vikings already having issues with Bryant McKinnie and Herrera still coming back from a torn ACL they can use all the depth that they can take.
