EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. According to reports, the Minnesota Vikings have tendered offers to cornerback A.J. Jefferson and returnercornerback Marcus Sherels before NFL free agency opens Tuesday. Jefferson, who was acquired from the Arizona Cardinals in a preseason trade last year, was a restricted free agent and received the low restricted tender of 1.33 million, as first reported by the Baltimore Sun. The tender will allow Minnesota to match any offer Jefferson, as a restricted free agent, will receive from any other team during free agency. Jefferson, 24, had 31 tackles and one fumble recovery last year for the Vikings as a reserve cornerback. Sherels, 25, was offered a one-year, 555,000 deal as an exclusive rights free agent on Monday, according to espn1500.com. Sherels, Minnesota's top punt returner last year, would have been a free agent if the Vikings didn't offer Sherels a contract. Follow Brian Hall on Twitter.

Minnesota Vikings re-sign FB Jerome Felton
