    Vikings release Erin Henderson

    @GoesslingESPN: #Vikings announce they have released Erin Henderson. Had been arrested twice for DUI since November.

    Erin Henderson - LB - Free Agent

    Vikings released LB Erin Henderson.
    Henderson didn't have a bad 2013 season on the field, seeing action at both middle and strong-side linebacker, but has been arrested for DUI twice since November, and cutting him saves Minnesota $2.1 million in salary cap space. Look for Henderson to draw interest in free agency, perhaps from Tampa Bay. He's a scheme fit for Lovie Smith's defense and has lots of history with new Bucs defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier. Henderson turns 28 in July.

    After his last DUI it was only a matter of time before he was released.

    Not hard to stick around when the team drafts LB's as badly as this team has in recent history…

    Ross Homan, Nathan Triplett, Jasper Brinkley, Rufus Alexander, Rod Davis, Donatarrius Thomas, Michael Nattiel, Roanall Smith, Nick Rogers etc.

    Some of those guys you mentioned wouldn't be in the league anyway even if they were effective. That's going a ways back.

    That's how bad the Vikes have been at drafting LB's - with the exception of Chad Greenway. I also didn't include Mike Mauti and Gerald Hodges cause the book is still out on them.

    I think more than anything, we haven't made it a priority. Other than Dontarrious Thomas (2nd), I believe Greenway is the only LB we've drafted in the first 4 rounds in the last 10 years going back to EJ Henderson in '03. Can't really expect 5th Rd picks and later to pan out on a consistent basis. Brinkley overacheived.

    I don't expect all late round picks to pan out but significantly more should make contributions. The Vikings have been woefully bad at prioritizing their LB needs - Zim will change that!

    well, given this is a position of need anyway, we now know it'll be a FA/draft priority

    while some of you aren't surprised, many of us are....for that very reason
    gotta love 'referential' treatment

    IMO I thought Erin was over rated by our last staff. Do you guys think some of it had to do with EJ?
