It has been rumored by many sources that the Vikings have had preliminary discussions with Eric Weddle’s agent on Tuesday. Weddle is arguably the best safety available in the free agent market this season and one of the top safeties in the league especially against the run. The Vikings currently have Madieu Williams and Abdullah projected to be the starting safeties but could release Madieu Williams due to his huge salary and cap hit. He has 3 years and around $16M left on his contract that he restructured in 2009.
