New Vikings defensive coordinator Leslie Frazier, a former assistant with the Indianapolis Colts, didn't bring defensive end Dwight Freeney to the Vikings, as joked about during Frazier's introductory press conference before Freeney was given the franchise designation in Indianapolis.
Instead, the next Indianapolis Colt the Vikings are showing an interest in is Aaron Moorehead, according to the Indianapolis Star, which is reporting today that Moorehead will visit Minnesota on Monday.
Moorehead, a 6-foot-3, 200-pound reserve, played in only 16 games combined in his first three seasons with the Colts before playing in 12 last season. Working behind Marvin Harrison, Reggie Wayne and Brandon Stokley, Moorehead never had more the eight receptions in a season and had a career-high 101 yards in his rookie season of 2003.
His only touchdown came last year on one of his eight catches. In four years, he has 265 yards receiving.
Moorehead is the third former Colt the Vikings have reportedly shown an interest in this offseason, but he would be the first one to visit with the team. The Vikings also had an interest in Nick Harper, and published reports also link them as a team that was interested in linebacker Cato June. Harper has since signed with Tennessee, where he likely will be a starter, and June signed with Tampa Bay.
Moorehead has not officially visited any teams yet this offseason.
