    Vikings reportedly considering Trotter and Gildon

    From Profootballweekly, June 9 free agent news:

    "The Vikings signed veteran LB Keith Newman to a two-year contract on Tuesday. The Vikings brought in Newman to address pressing issues concerning their depth. Head coach Mike Tice said the signing was unrelated to the arrests of LBs E.J. Henderson and Mike Nattiel early Sunday morning. Henderson, who missed minicamp after undergoing arthroscopic knee surgery, should be ready for training camp, the team said this week. The Vikings made several attempts to bring in other veteran linebackers and will consider June 1 cap casualties Jason Gildon and Jeremiah Trotter.

    Newman, 27, will be learning his third defense in as many years. He excels on special teams, which is part of the reason Tice felt Newman would be a good addition. Newman is expected to back up OLB Chris Claiborne and the winner of the WLB job, Dontarrious Thomas or Nattiel."

    Not much detail, and no source is quoted so we don't know how reliable this is, but PFW is usually pretty accurate with these reports. Maybe Tice and co. just haven't made much noise about it.

    I hope so, I would prefer Trotter just because he is younger but I'll take either one!!

    I get the most pissed off looks from people with my VKG 4 LFE Wisconsin license plate, and I LOVE IT!!

    I don't really care for that website. There never seems to be any credence behind the rumors. I don't think i've ever seen a signing actually happen that they've talked about before hand.

    Maybe, though. Just maybe. I'd like them, but as i've said; I wouldn't be dissapointed too much if we don't get either. I don't think Gildon is worth very much, so it depends on how much we could hypothetically get him for.
