Vikings have offer on the table for former Minnesota CB Mackensie Alexander
In 2019, the Vikings cornerback system was not best. Trae Waynes was irregular and, eventually, Minnesota let him stroll in complimentary company. Xavier Rhodes did not look like his old self and he, too, signed in other places in complimentary company.
Mackensie Alexander was probably the very best cornerback on that defense. Alexander was a trustworthy tackler in the slot and ended up 2019 with a general PFF grade of 65.7, which is a much better PFF grade than every 2020 Vikings cornerback besides Cameron Dantzler and Harrison Hand this season.
Alexander signed a one-year offer with the Bengals for 2020. Now that’s he’s a totally free representative, could a reunion with his previous group be on the horizon?
As reported by Ben Goessling of the Star Tribune, the Vikings have a deal on the table for their old cornerback.
Alexander returning to the Vikings on an inexpensive offer would actually improve the outlook of the cornerback system. Cameron Dantzler is most likely the group’s finest alternative out broad. If Alexander concerned the group and played in the slot, all Minnesota would need to do is discover another functional cornerback to combine out broad with Dantzler. Alexander can likewise play out broad if requirement be if Minnesota wishes to put Jeff Gladney in the slot full-time.
Then, with Dantzler and Alexander, the system might be good. Gladney, Harrison Hand or perhaps even a novice or a low-priced complimentary representative are all choices for another corner area. Nevertheless, today all Minnesota has is a deal on the table for Alexander. It’d benefit the group if he consented to it and returned.
