Free agent offensive lineman Vlad Ducasse will decide between the Vikings and two other teams this week, tweets Ben Goessling of ESPN.com. While Goessling hears that the interest between him and Vikings is mutual, Darren Wolfson of 1500 ESPN (on Twitter) hears that there’s no verbal agreement in place yet. Ducasse visited Minnesota to meet with club officials earlier today.
The Bengals are one of the teams in the mix along with a “mystery team,” according to Wolfson. We learned last week that the Jets have interest in retaining the guard but the Bengals and Vikings appear to be more likely. The Jets drafted Ducasse based on his upside and potential, not expecting much out of the football neophyte early on. Four years in, the former second round pick has yet to show that he can take a step forward towards being a reliable starter.
