Vikings Free Agency Rumors 2012: Brandon Carr Not An Option For Minnesota

Once thought as a viable free-agent option to fulfill the Minnesota Vikings needs at corner back, Brandon Carr will not be a target of the Vikings come the 3 p.m. CT start of the NFL free-agent period, sources tell TwinCities.com.

Despite the need for a top cornerback, the Minnesota Vikings are not expected to enter the free agency bidding for Kansas City Chiefs cornerback Brandon Carr, according to two people with knowledge of the situation.

In late February, The Pioneer Press floated Carr's name as an free-agent option for Minnesota, which desperately needs help in the secondary.

As already mentioned, Finnegan will be an option for the Vikings as he was not given the franchise tag by the Titans. Minnesota may also be trying to save its money to spend on a high-priced wide receiver.
