The Vikings Are Plugging Holes. Sign Linval Joseph To Five Year Deal

By Derek White

On the way out (most likely) of Minnesota are Jared Allen and Kevin Williams, both have been staples on the defensive front for the Vikings. Not good right? Depends on who you ask. Ask New York Giants fans and they are NOT happy to lose DT Linval Joseph. Here’s the ESPN.com report. This is a great get for the Vikings. Joseph is young (25 years old) and will be lining up next to Sharrif Floyd, who’ll be in his second year next season. A terrible Vikings defense line now sits at Griffen, Robison, Floyd and Joseph. All are young, all are hungry and all are working under Mike Zimmer. Perhaps Rodgers, Cutler and Stafford are paying attention……oh, and they’ll be facing these guys outside for the next two years.
