The second wave of free agency, per usual, is featuring a number of visits. The Vikings will participate. They are set to meet with veteran cornerback Chandon Sullivan, Ian Rapoport of NFL.com tweets.
Sullivan has been a Packers regular for the past three seasons. That included time with current Vikings staffer Mike Pettine, who was the Packers’ defensive coordinator from 2018-20. Green Bay signed Sullivan during the 2019 offseason, picking the former UDFA up after the Eagles waived him.
Coming out of Georgia State, Sullivan worked frequently as Green Bay’s slot corner during his Wisconsin time. Last season, Pro Football Focus graded Sullivan as one of its top slot defenders. The 5-foot-11 cover man ranked in the top five among slot players snaps per target and snaps per reception. For traditional stats, Sullivan intercepted three passes and broke up four more.
Sullivan, 25, played 77% of Green Bay’s defensive snaps last season. The Packers have Jaire Alexander on the cusp of an extension, used a first-round pick on Eric Stokes last season and prioritized a Rasul Douglas re-up. This appears to point to Alexander leaving in free agency.
The Vikings are expected to let slot defender Mackensie Alexander walk in free agency. Alexander was a staple in Minnesota’s secondary, but with the team having canned Mike Zimmer, it is moving in a different direction.
