The Minnesota Vikings desperately needed veteran help in their secondary, even after signing Patrick Peterson last week. And to find that help, they have turned to a familiar face. Mackensie Alexander was drafted by Minnesota and played under Mike Zimmer for his first four seasons in the NFL, before leaving for Cincinnati last offseason. Now, he returns to his purple and gold roots.





Alexander left Minnesota in frustration, last offseason, so this proves a couple of old sayings. The grass wasn’t greener on the other side for Mack and time clearly healed whatever wounds had been gouged in the past by the Vikings decisionmakers.

As for Vikings fans, I’m just happy we found more CB depth. Now… how about that offensive line?
