Vikings | Four DBs unlikely to return

Fri, 03 Feb 2012 18:26:06 -0800

The Minnesota Vikings are unlikely to bring back SS Tyrell Johnson, SS Jarrad Page, CB Benny Sapp or SS Andrew Sendejo in 2012. Page is expected to become a free agent in March, and he is not likely to re-sign. Sapp doesn't fit in with the youth movement in Minnesota, and he is unsigned heading into 2012. The Vikings are expected to cut bait with Johnson. Sendejo is signed through 2012, but he is probably not in the team's future plans.

Minnesota Vikings CB Chris Cook is expected to start the team's third preseason game Saturday, Aug. 28, reports the Minneapolis Star Tribune's Chip Scoggins.
