TOP 10: Defensive tackles in the NFL draft. Do the Minnesota Vikings take one?

Career Stats: 8 Years in league | 99 tackles | 3 Sacks | 1 Forced Fumble Evans has been a longtime member of the Vikings who has been a situational run stuffer on their defensive line.  His value to the team can’t properly be measured by his stats, as he’s primarily used to plug running lanes and free up linebackers to make plays.

So, Fred Evans Sister is an Olympic Bobsledder

So, I guess technically Minnesota Vikings defensive tackle, Fred Evans, is still a member of the team, right? If my math numbering is correct, I think he's a free agent heading into the 2014. But so is Kevin Williams. And while I'd much rather see Williams back, the money makes more sense to bring Evans back and call it a day while Sharrif Floyd develops into a nice starter.
