Vikings Free Agency 2012: Minnesota Will Host OL Geoff Schwartz On Monday

The Minnesota Vikings are likely going to look to shore up their offensive line in the draft with USC tackle Matt Kalil, and they've now started to make moves in Free Agency that may improve it as well. The Vikings will be hosting free agent right tackle/guard Geoff Schwartz on Monday.

Schwartz was a seventh round pick by the Carolina Panthers back in 2008 and missed the entire 2011 season because of a hip injury. He is back in shape now and ready to help contribute, and on the Vikings especially he would add much needed depth and versatility to the line.

He did not get a restricted FA tender from the Panthers, which means the Vikings won't have to give up anything if they want to sign Schwartz to a contract after his visit.
