Mike Remmers visiting Vikings, Texans, will play right tackle

Free agent offensive tackle Mike Remmers is visiting the Vikings today and the Texans tomorrow.

Agent Brett Tessler tells PFT that Remmers should know his destination shortly.

“Several teams have reached out over the last few days and we’re close to making a decision,” Tessler said.

Remmers has started all 16 games for the Panthers the last two seasons, as well as all three postseason games after the 2015 season. Although he moved to left tackle last season after Michael Oher suffered a concussion, Remmers is expected to play right tackle wherever he goes.

    Yikes. I was hoping the Vikings would upgrade their line this offseason but apparently that’s not going to happen.

    It looks more and more like AP will not be a Viking. They need to sign guys like this. It takes too long to develop linemen from the later rounds in the draft. But to do it takes cash. Can’t make it work without letting some people go.

    Let’s re-phrase this statement for accuracy. “Remmers is expected to TRY to play right tackle where ever he goes.”

    The Vikings sign some offensive linemen last year in free agency and afterward Coach Mike Zimmer famously announced, “No more excuses”

    If Mike Remmers wants to sniff the playoffs, he’ll take a hard look at the Texans.

    He’s already been flagged for a false start. Don’t worry, more will follow…

    Well, it is an upgrade for the Vikings. Just not by much it appears.

    mike remmers is probably going to play backup. The Vikings should do better. How about Beachum??

    There doesn’t seem to be a lot of confidence in Remmers here but I read an article by a respected writer saying he should be the Vikings’ number one free agent target. I didn’t agree with that but I wouldn’t mind adding him to the team. I don’t think the Vikings should feel like they’re all set at right tackle if they sign him, though. I’d like them to add as many bodies as they can both to generate competition and to have somebody capable as a backup if they have another rash of injuries.
