Vikings Claim Andrew Sendejo

The Vikings claimed safety Andrew Sendejo off waivers from the Eagles, according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com (on Twitter). It’s a reunion for the vet and the Vikes – Sendejo spent eight seasons in Minnesota up until this year. 

The Vikings had the opportunity to keep Sendejo through 2019, but they elected to put him on the free agent pile by waiving his option. He would have earned $5.5MM had he stayed. Instead, the Vikings dropped that entire number from the cap and set the wheels in motion for him to sign a one year deal with Philly.

Now, he’s back, but at a much lower rate. He’ll have his first chance to don purple again on Sunday, when the Vikings take on the Cowboys.

    does that mean we get the comp pick if he remains with the Vikings?

    Did you not watch Sunday’s game? Their secondary was horrendous. Harris was especially bad.

      He’s worse. Always with the cheap shot on 3rd and long. I’m hoping they’re just using him to scare Javon Kearse straight.

        Yes, but they couldn’t stop those receivers with Matt Moore throwing the football. It’d be much more forgivable if Pat Mahomes was out there tearing them up, but a career backup made their secondary look like Swiss cheese. Any help they can get is good help.

    Of course if it were the Patriots making this move there would be dozens of conspiracy crackpots coming out of the woodwork.

        I don’t think the player is actually that relevant as the conspiracy nuts are convinced that the Patriots always manipulate the rules and system regardless of who is involved.
