Minnesota Vikings To Hold Offensive Lineman Tryouts

After seeing Brett Favre on the ground numerous times, Pro Bowler Bryant McKinnie benched, and a decrease in Adrian Peterson's production, the Minnesota Vikings announced early Wednesday that they will be holding try-outs to help fill the holes in the offensive line.

The Vikings, who began the season 10-1, are now 11-4 and fighting for the No. 2 seed in the NFC playoffs.

Peterson's production has dwindled in recent games. Peterson saw two games in which he touched the ball 25 times for 54 yards.

First time Pro Bowler, Bryant McKinnie, was benched during the third quarter of a 26-7 loss to the Carolina Panthers, after DE Julius Peppers pitched a tent in the Vikings backfield.

Favre has seen an increase in sacks, hurries, and hits. Due to multiple pocket collapses, Favre has been desperate enough to throw to Naufahu Tahi and Anthony Herrera.

The Vikings announced Wednesday through a spokesperson that they will be holding the lineman try-outs on Friday at Winter Park.

The Vikings recommend that you are at least 6'4'', 300 lbs, or share genes with Jim Kliensasser if you plan on trying out.
