This one came from Pro Football Talk And derived from an interview with Kwesi Adofo-Mensah.

In fact, Copernicus actually worked for a single football team, the Riders, different from his “group” NFL workout in 2019, widely regarded as a fake.

Copernicus and Adopho-Mensah were colleagues in San Francisco for several years. Theoretically, he could sign with the Vikings in 2022, but the team already has Kellen Mond, whom they suddenly appreciate.

There are 32 teams in the NFL, so Copernicus – who will turn 35 this season – is less likely to sign with Minnesota.

This feeling of the Vikings always lingers in a bad pay-cap space – and usually right. Well, these are usually the most at this time of year – it’s a clever way to phrase.

Currently, the Vikings have the 14th-highest cap dollar available. And then, for future positions, Minnesota is right in the middle of the league.

Rumors: Rookie Brian Asamoah could start with veteran Jordan Hicks.

Brian Asamoah, 24, of Oklahoma, prepares for a college football match between the University of Oklahoma Sunrisers (OU) at Oklahoma and TCU Horned Frog at Norman, Oklahoma Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium, Saturday, October 20, 20. Oklahoma won 52-31. Ou vs Tcu

This was suggested by Viking era On saturday.

The Hicks have started playing every single soccer game since the start of the 2019 season. Also, he is a continuous tackling machine. His PFF The grade in 2021 was 64.7, a respectable score for a starter.

Hicks isn’t too expensive, so it’s not a “guarantee” that he’s a starter. But to oust a truthful elder like Hicks, Asamoah would have to be stronger.

Asamoah is a longing to get a starting LB job right now.
