    Vikes sign Wotton to a one year deal so it looks like Emery decided he didn't want him back. Now we'll have both our former starting DEs haunting us twice a year. LOL

    The Minnesota Vikings are signing former Chicago Bears veteran free agent defensive lineman Corey Wooton to a one-year contract, according to his agent, Mike McCartney. Wooton is a former Bears fourth-round draft pick selected out of Norhwestern in 2010. He was an All-Big Ten Conference selection.

    In 2012, Wooton played in every game and started seven with seven sacks recorded. He also scored a touchdown off a blocked punt. Last season, he started five games and had 34 tackles, three sacks and a forced fumble. For his career, Wooton has recorded 70 tackles, 11 sacks and three forced fumbles.

    Bad move my Emery in my opinion. I think Wootton will flourish once he gets healthy again.

    seemed worthy of a 1 year $1.5 million deal. How much cap space have they cleared now?

    If we were able to get him at 1.5 mil in wish we would have given him that prove it dirt cheap deal. We are still thin at de and he possibly could have been a player that could contribute

    Here we go with all "The Sky Is Falling" posts again. NOBODY on that horrible "D" line was any good last year. FA isn't over with either.
    :-(

    I somewhat agree. I would have liked to have had Wooton back, but I wouldn't have signed him to a deal this early.

    I'm very surprise ANYONE would sign him this early given his lack of medical clearance. I would like to have had him back but not for this deal and not right now.

    This ^^^^

    I suspect that Halas Hall is as surprised as we are for this reason.

    Also, I think we will miss Wootton more than Pep. Corey won't be a star but a solid guy in the rotation.
