    The Vikings had rookie corner Manny Collins (Rutgers) in for a workout on Tuesday. Collins was recently let go by the New York Jets. Here’s a bio on Collins....

    Are we looking for a better #4 corner, or is somebody hurt? I guess you have to always seek to improve.

    Did a quick search.
    Didn't see any injuries.
    I guess a CB won't hurt.

    Not very impressive college stats.
    Here is what I found on him.

    68 tackles 2 INTS and 4 fumble recoveries.

    The two INTs were in the same game against North Carolina.

    At least one of the fumble recoveries was for a TD against Connecticut.

    He also blocked a punt against Louisville.

    They were probably looking at a player or two to add to the team in case they were able to trade Memo.

    exactly what i was thinking, and what better spot to try and add depth to then our pass defense, plus those are always players that can be used on special teams too (which after last game we also learned u need depth at with tahi & cuircui going down)
