Linval Joseph recovering from shoulder surgery
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

Vikings defensive tackle Linval Joseph is not participating in the team's mandatory minicamp as he recovers from January shoulder surgery. Joseph told ESPN.com that the team knew about the surgery when it signed him to a five-year, $31.5 million contract in March.

Joseph was able to do individual drills during OTAs and said he's picking up the defensive scheme. "I feel like I'm not too far behind," he told the website. "I'm just waiting until the start of training camp, to show what I can do."

Linval Joseph too pricey for Giants to keep?
by Larry Hartstein | CBSSports.com

The Giants want to re-sign defensive tackle Linval Joseph, but the impending free agent probably will be too expensive, reports The Star-Ledger. Joseph, 25, had 59 tackles, three sacks, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery last season.

Second-year Giants defensive tackle Johnathan Hankins would play a much bigger role if Joseph leaves, the report added.
