Vikes Miss Out on Another LB

Just days after Philadelphia re-signed LB Jeremiah Trotter, the other premiere veteran linebacker still available -- Jason Gildon -- signs a one-year deal.

The Vikings have a lot of confidence in their young linebackers, but many thought when the team had the opportunity to get released linebackers Jeremiah Trotter or Jason Gildon, they could play the waiting game and get either one for below-market value.

Apparently the Vikings' interest was little to none. Just days after Trotter signed a one-year deal for $550,000 with the Eagles, Gildon also went off the board Friday.

VU has been told that Gildon has agreed to a one-year contract with the Bills for $1.25 million and an incentive package that could add another $500,000 to the deal.

Gildon will rejoin former Steelers assistant and new Buffalo head coach Mike Mullarkey, leaving the Vikings high and dry once again in their search for starting linebackers, which they seem convinced they have already.
