Vikings Make Offer To OL Nick Easton

The Vikings are looking to retain one of their former starting offensive guards. Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press tweets that the organization made an offer to free agent Nick Easton.

Tomasson notes that Easton met with the Saints yesterday, and there are several other teams currently in the mix for the lineman. The 26-year-old may take several additional visits before making a decision at some point over the next week.

The former undrafted free agent out of Harvard bounced between the Ravens and 49ers as a rookie before landing in Minnesota, where he’s spent the past three years. The offensive guard emerged in 2016 by starting five of his 11 appearances, and he proceeded to start all 12 of his games during the 2017 campaign. However, a fractured right ankle ended his season early, while a neck injury forced him to miss the entirety of the 2018 campaign.

Still, considering his starting experience and versatility (he’s also played some center), it isn’t surprising that several teams are eyeing Easton. Danny Isidora and Aviante Collins are currently slotted in as the Vikings’ starting guards, and Easton could realistically beat out either of the two for a starting nod.
