Vikings apply second-round tender to Fred Evans

With starting defensive tackles Pat and Kevin Williams potentially missing four games this year due to the StarCaps situation, the Vikings need to have solid guys in place behind them.

One of them is Fred Evans, a restricted free agent.

Per a league source, the Vikings have tendered Evans at the second-round level.

Evans will be eligible to receive a one-year salary in the amount of $1.759 million.  But since 110 percent of his 2009 salary is $1.6995 million, Evans can hold out until the eve of the regular season and lose only $60,000 in salary.

    I’d rather keep Jimmy Kennedy at a moderate price

    Jimmy Kennedy played well in place of Pat.

    Fred who? Does he take Starcaps too or is illegal substance abuse just limited to the Williams sisters?

    ==============================
    Jimmy who? Are you the only packer fan that takes it in the ass, or, is it all of you?
    Dont answer. It was a rhetorical question.

    Jimmy Kennedy mauled Karen Rodgers pretty decently last year… I think he is worth it… unless the Vikings plan to draft a DT in the first round. I noticed some of our cornerbacks not being tendered an offer either… maybe some free agency pickups and drafting there as well…

    I don’t know what your watching but I did not see any dude named Jimmy Kennedy maul Rodgers last season.
    Moron.

    packers4life,
    Kennedy sacked Rodgers in the first game. Sorry bud, but you fail again.
    In fact Kennedy threw Spitz to the ground on the play and Spitz rolled into Colledge’s knee, knocking him out of the game, and leading to more mayhem.
    Starting to ring a bell yet?
