Players Visits Continue

While the Vikings didn't make any signings during the day Tuesday, there were plenty of visits around the league of interest to Vikings fans.

With the Vikings' many roster needs, here is a look at some of the activity around the league at positions of interest to Vikings fans:

  • The Vikings did indeed visit with wide receiver Bobby Wade (Tennessee Titans), but no deal was struck as of 5:30 p.m. Tuesday and Wade was heading out of town.

  • After letting wide receiver Kevin Curtis get out of town without a contract (just as happened to the Vikings), the Detroit Lions also went on to Plan B, bringing in wide receiver Shaun McDonald for a visit Tuesday. Both McDonald and Curtis played with the Rams last year as backups to Torry Holt and Isaac Bruce.

    Curtis was expected to visit Kansas City at some point Tuesday, according to a league source, but he didn't arrive on time to make it an official visit for Tuesday anyway. Some reports had Curtis on his way to visit with the New York Giants, but another league source confirmed that he was not in the Big Apple Tuesday.

  • Wide receiver Donte Stallworth (Philadelphia Eagles) was visiting with the New England Patriots.

  • Tight end Eric Johnson (San Francisco 49ers) was talking with the New Orleans Saints, a team that has also shown interest in tight end Daniel Graham (New England Patriots), whom the Vikings were interested in before they signed Visanthe Shiancoe on Saturday.

  • Graham was in Seattle Tuesday, along with guard Cooper Carlisle (Denver Broncos), who might be a good fit for the Vikings if he remains on the market. The team could be looking to upgrade their right guard spot, either in free agency or the draft. Carlisle, a 6-foot-5, 295-pound seven-year veteran of the league, started every game at right guard for the Broncos the past two seasons.

  • Tight end Jerramy Stevens was visiting Tampa Bay.

  • Former Vikings cornerback Kenny Wright signed with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday.
