EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. Minnesota Vikings coach Leslie Frazier has shared his displeasure with the team's depth at linebacker, making a point of stating it's one position that needs work before the season begins on Sept. 9.
Frazier has been hoping to get more out of the current group on the roster and hasn't been afraid to say the team is always looking at what's available in free agency as well. Frazier even hinted some changes, though not necessarily at linebacker, could be made before the team reports for training camp on July 26.
In the meantime, Frazier is trying to solve the problem internally, by revisiting an old experiment.
Third-year defensive end Everson Griffen is again working at linebacker in an attempt to shore up the depth and also to get the explosive Griffen on the field more. He worked the final practice of mandatory minicamp last week at linebacker and Frazier said Griffen will get more repetitions as a linebacker during training camp.
