Former Seattle Seahawks tight end John Carlson will visit the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday, according to a report. Carlson, formerly a 2008 second round pick and teammate of current Vikings tight end Kyle Rudolph at Notre Dame, missed the 2011 season with a shoulder injury.
The tight end has career marks of 137 catches for 1,519 yards and 13 touchdowns and is also scheduled to visit with the Kansas City Chiefs, whose tight end coach Bernie Parmalee coached Carlson in college.
The first day of NFL free agency brought about a flurry of activity and an abundance of money being tossed around to players including WR Vincent Jackson and WR Pierre Garcon. The Vikings remained quiet, but the visit of Carlson indicates more activity could soon be on the way.
