Marcus Sherels' agent says it's hard to find a player comparable to his client. The Vikings evidently agree.
Everything Jared Allen wants appears to be nothing the Vikings can offer, so it would be stunning if the free-agent defensive end re-signs with the team.
The Vikings will get an early start on their offseason with a new head coach in place. Mike Zimmer announced the dates of their minicamps and OTAs.
The Vikings' biggest issue is at quarterback, where Christian Ponder is the only player they have under contract.
With uncertainties looming over the Vikings' 2014 roster construction heading into free agency, one thing is a near lock: the defensive line will look different.
Friday was a pretty good day for the Sherels family. The Vikings on Friday announced they've re-signed punt returner and cornerback Marcus Sherels.

In 7-1/2 weeks, Mike Zimmer finally will be able to coach some Vikings players.
Vikings coach Mike Zimmer has made it clear. He wants Matt Cassel back.
He may not get to vote on the matter, but Vikings running back Adrian Peterson has weighed in with his choice for his team's next starting quarterback.
Although Mike Zimmer hasn’t talked to Matt Cassel much, the new Vikings coach would like the quarterback to return to the team “if Matt Cassel wants to be back.”
The Vikings released DT Letroy Guion and WR Greg Childs. The release of Guion should give the Vikings more than $35 million under the salary cap.
The Vikings are making their way around the state to promote the advantages of a new stadium. Their event Wednesday didn’t garner much interest.
The Minnesota Vikings continued to remake their defensive line on Thursday afternoon, releasing defensive tackle Letroy Guion and clearing another $4 million of cap room by shedding the final year of the 26-year-old's deal.

With the phones opening this weekend for the three day communication window and the official signing beginning this coming Tuesday, the Vikings are in a position to make a splash or two on the open market.

You may have heard the news that has been floating around Thursday morning in regards to linebacker Jasper Brinkley's visit with the Buffalo Bills.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is a self-proclaimed “fixer.” He’ll accept every challenge to work his magic and fix a player, even unrestricted free agent cornerback Chris Cook.
