And Childress may go back again.
He told NFL Network’s Jason La Canfora that the fifth-year head coach hasn’t ruled out another trip to Mississip.
“[B]ut not in the near future,” Childress said.
Childress also said that discussions continue regarding the search for a replacement for running back Chester Taylor, who defected to the Bears on the first day of free agency. Last week, the Vikings lost out on former Chargers running back LaDainian Tomlinson, who picked the Jets as the next destination for his Hall of Fame career.
“We’re continuing turning over those rocks, if you will,” Childress told La Canfora, “but nothing is jumping to the forefront.”
Childress’ prior visit to the Land of Favre included a discussion of the merits of Albert Young, a street free agent who has been climbing the depth chart at tailback.
