Josh Kline visiting Vikings, other teams this week

Offensive guard Josh Kline indeed is expected to visit the Vikings this week as he currently is “coordinating visits with different teams,” Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune reports.

Nick Easton‘s departure for the Saints leaves Minnesota with only one guard under contract for 2019 who has played in a regular-season game. Danny Isidora has taken 361 career snaps.

The Vikings also have expressed interest in interior offensive lineman Stefan Wisniewski, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports. Wisniewski will visit the Jets this week.

Tennessee recently released Kline, who signed a four-year, $20 million extension with the Titans a year ago.

Kline, 29, has made starts at left guard and right guard in his career.

The Titans claimed him off waivers from the Patriots in 2016. He moved into the starting lineup early that season at right guard after Chance Warmack was injured.

Kline started 46 games for the Titans over three seasons after starting 18 in New England.

  1. How do you sign a guy to a 4 year deal, 20 million contract one year and releas him the next? Hope Vikes can sign him! They need to fortify the protection of the 75. Million dollar QB

  2. Josh Kline career PFF ranks:

    2018: 53rd
    2017: 31st
    2016: 40th
    2015: 34th
    2014: 57th
    2013: 69th

    Some dude on his couch with a PFF subsciption could sign and draft better O-linemen than Rick Spielman

  3. Come on, Vikes–find some quality starting O-linemen! How are you gonna open holes for runners and pass-block for Cousins without good linemen? Stop fooling around with second-stringers and find some top-notch blockers. Without that, the offense is going to die a slow death. Spielman, this is on you: upgrade the O-line significantly or be prepared to lose a lot this year.

  4. No thanks, draft the O-line. Zim will choose a CB. Bank on it. If he does, fire him on the spot please.

  5. Just because Kline sucks doesn’t mean he’s out of a job, there is always the Vikings. Signing him would be like last season, let’s take other team’s castoffs and bring them in as our starting OL. Different year, same results.

  6. Anyone will do. I think this whole thing has a lot to do with chemistry and the fact that it did not have this chemistry with what the Vikings had to work with. I am for this move and if Cousins gets any time in the pocket then the Vikings will be rolling litterally and figuratively. SB here we come 🐱

  7. It has come to this? Patriots castoff, cut again by Titans and Vikings are looking for him to start. PFF ranked him the 69th OG who started games last year. Keep in mind there are only 64 OGs playing any given week. Reiff is uninspiring, the rookie RT gets moved around like a high schooler playing against Alabama, and Elflien was a revolving turnstile at C last year. They need 5 upgrades and are relying on the draft and these castoffs. I can tell you already 2019 is going to be another disappointment. Good thing they signed an avg OLB to monster deal leaving them no $$. Watch Spielman give away either Rhodes or Waynes for nothing and sign another castoff to an overpriced contract because he is desperate and teams know it. I’m a diehard fan, but this off-season is baffling.
