Jimmy Kennedy Seems To Be A Good Fit

Kennedy

Vikings defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy has had a rough career. 

It started well, as he was the 12th overall pick by the Rams in 2003.  However, he never reached his potential and in 2007 the Rams traded him to the Broncos for a sixth round draft pick.  He never made it to the regular season with the Broncos, as he was cut.  The Bears picked him up late in the season, and he played the last three games with them.  He was then picked up by the Jaguars, who waived him mid-season in 2008.

Then, word leaked about the potential suspensions of Kevin and Pat Williams for their use of StarCaps.  The Vikings picked up Kennedy as an insurance policy.

The Williams duo has yet to be suspended, but Jimmy Kennedy is still seeing plenty of action, and, as has made a fairly large contribution in 2009. 

He has 17 tackles, 2 tackles for losses, 1 defended pass, 5 quarterback hurries, and 3 sacks.  Not bad for a second string guy.

It seems that Kennedy is finally reaching his potential in the NFL, and as an upcoming free agent, it would not be too surprising if his current team invites him back for the first time in his career.
