Vikings Free Agency 2012: Minnesota Re-Signs LB Erin Henderson

The Minnesota Vikings re-signed linebacker Erin Henderson to a one-year deal, according to Chris Miller of The Minneapolis Star Tribune.

Our own Sid Hartman called minutes ago to report the transaction. The contract is worth $2 million. Henderson started last season alongside his brother, middle linebacker E.J. Henderson, and Chad Greenway.

Henderson, 25, has played all four of his NFL seasons with the Minnesota Vikings. In his first season as a starter last year, Henderson recorded 70 tackles, 1.5 sacks and forced two fumbles. He started 11 games and played in 15 games last season.

In his four years with the Vikings, Henderson has 96 tackles, three forced fumbles and 1.5 sacks. He is 6-foot-3, 244 pounds and played his college ball at Maryland.
