Vikings | D. Bennett could Return Later
The Minneapolis Star Tribune reports Minnesota Vikings head coach Mike Tice said P Darren Bennett, cut Sunday, Sept. 5, could return to the team for their Week 2 contest. The Vikings will keep looking at punters, but Tice said Bennett will definitely not be re-signed for Week 1. Releasing him now gave the Vikings additional financial flexibility for this season; had Bennett been on the roster for the opening game, the Vikings would have been required to guarantee his $765,000 base salary for the season. If they re-sign him after the first game, they will be responsible only for the prorated portion of that salary.
