The Vikings have their new quarterback in Kirk Cousins, but they may have to find someone new to block for him.
Joe Berger, a guard/center who started all 16 games for the Vikings last year, is considering retirement, according to NFL Network.
In December, Berger told Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press that he was planning to retire. But more recently he was reportedly reconsidering.
The Lions and Panthers reportedly showed interest in Berger as well, and the Vikings have made him a good contract offer to try to keep him around. But Berger may have decided that it’s time to hang up the cleats.
The 35-year-old Berger has played seven seasons in Minnesota after previous stops in Miami and Dallas.
