The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed linebacker Erin Henderson to a one-year deal and signed former Chicago Bears cornerback Zack Bowman to a one-year contract.
The Vikings announced the moves on Tuesday. Henderson was one of the Vikings' most consistent players on defense last season. He was fourth on the team with 91 tackles and also had eight tackles for loss in his first season as a full-time starter.
Bowman led the Bears with six interceptions and 10 passes defensed in 2009. But he lost his starting job in 2010 and never regained it in the past two seasons.
In Minnesota, he'll be relied upon to add depth to a Vikings secondary that struggled last season. The 27-year-old likely will also be used on special teams.

NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell has already gutted the Saints of much of their key leadership for the 2012 season, banishing HC Sean Payton for the duration, GM Mickey Loomis for half of it and assistant coach Joe Vitt for six games, in the wake of the league’s investigation into the team’s bounty program.
However Goodell has, to this point, refrained from punishing any of the...
The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed receiver Devin Aromashodu to a one-year deal.
The team announced the deal on Wednesday, continuing an offseason filled with low-impact signings that are geared more toward adding depth than making headlines.
In his first season with the Vikings last year, Aromashodu caught 26 passes for 468 yards and three touchdowns. He signed with the Vikings...
At the end of February, Minnesota Vikings running back Adrian Peterson indicated that he plans on being ready to play in the first regular season game of the 2012 season, despite tearing both his ACL and MCL at the end of this past season.
At this week’s NFL owners meetings, Vikings head coach Leslie Frazier made it clear that even though they’re trying to help Peterson pace...
Two weeks into free agency, followers of the Minnesota Vikings have questioned new general manager Rick Spielman's relative inactivity coming off of last season's 3-13 record.
The moves included re-signing several players from last year, adding a tight end and offensive lineman who both missed all of last season and bringing in two fullbacks. Yet perhaps the one move that...
Obviously Peyton Manning felt he had unfinished business. Among the items on his to-do list are some records currently held by Brett Favre and Dan Marino. Weller Ross takes a look at those records and finds that Manning may find himself at the top of the charts sooner rather than later:
So similarly to completions, Peyton should catch Marino this year, and despite being 109 behind...
The Gregg Williams-led bounty program has been far reaching in NFL circles and more than once it has targeted Minnesota Vikings' quarterbacks.
Brett Favre received a lot of attention after being battered by the New Orleans Saints in the 2009 NFC Championship game, but apparently another Minnesota signal-caller had been targeted years before. A report by David Elfin at the CBS...
Former Chicago Bears' cornerback Zack Bowman will spend his fifth NFL season with a division rival. Bowman, 27, has signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings.
Bowman was drafted in 2008 and spent his first four years in Chicago. He was a starter, but lost his job in 2010 and has played little since then. His best NFL season came in 2009 when he made six interceptions...
The Minnesota Vikings signed free-agent cornerback Zack Bowman to a one-year deal on Monday.
Terms were not disclosed on the contract, which was first reported by ESPN Chicago.
Bowman fared well two seasons ago when he led the Chicago Bears with six interceptions. He then spent much of the last two campaigns in a reserve role as well as on special teams.
Bowman had 15 tackles last season.
The Vikings have signed a number of blockers in free agency, but they have yet to add a speedy running back in reserve if Adrian Peterson isn’t ready to go. That could happen in the draft.

Vikings running back Adrian Peterson is scheduled to start running on land this week, according to head coach Leslie Frazier, as part of his rehabilitation from ACL surgery.
