In a few hours the NFL free agent period will begin at 3 p.m. CT, and the Minnesota Vikings will have a lot of decision to make in the next few hours, days and months. However, the Vikings already have made a few decisions Tuesday announcing that running back Lorenzo Booker and linebacker Kenny Onatolu will not be tendered and will be available on the open market.
According to a report by TwinCities.com, the Vikings notified Booker's and Onatolu's camps of their plans. Booker is expected to search for a brand new team, while Minnesota is very interested in resigning Onatolu for more years but less money.
Booker's "release" comes as no surprise after a tough 2011-12 season that featured him carrying the ball just 13 times and fumbling three teams.
Meanwhile, in three season with Minnesota Onatolu has 33 tackles.
