With the Vikings strictly limited in their ability to sign unrestricted free agents, they’ll have to improve the team via other avenues.
As a final four franchise from 2009, they’re permitted to pursue any restricted free agents. Of those, the best are the ones that have no restriction.
Enter Colts cornerback Marlin Jackson. The restricted free agent did not receive a tender from the Colts, allowing the Vikings or any other team to snatch him up.
Chip Scoggins of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that the Vikings are interested in Jackson. As to whether that interest becomes action, stay tuned.
