Vikings | Charlie Johnson says playing guard is easier

Sat, 26 May 2012 07:40:04 -0700

Minnesota Vikings OG Charlie Johnson said playing the guard position is easier than tackle. Johnson is moving to left guard after the selection of OT Matt Kalil in the NFL Draft.

"He may be free and looking to help where help is needed. That's the biggest change. You can get more help instead of being out on an island."
