Kennedy Signing Is Huge

Excuse me for getting a little bit excited, but the re-signing of Jimmy Kennedy is a huge plus for the Vikings. Not only is Kennedy a more then capable backup, but he can fill in nicely as an occasional starter if necessary.

For the most part, Kennedy has been an NFL journeyman. But when he first came out of Penn. State he was considered a “can’t miss” dominant NFL Defensive Tackle. However, his work ethic and stamina just didn’t live up to the hype.

As a backup, Kennedy can spell Williams and Williams without a drop off in production. In a reduced role, Kennedy has shown flashes of brilliance and dominance.

    Just caught it this AM, great news indeed. He had good production as a backup last year, and I think he still has what it takes to be a dominant defensive lineman….especially along the Vikes front.

    What’s more, we won’t have to worry about drafting a DT
