--FS Husain Abdullah could return because he's not expected to garner much interest on the open market after suffering four concussions over the past two seasons. The Vikings need to upgrade both safety positions, but have so many other needs to address. They would feel comfortable with Abdullah, who knows the defense and was making progress before ending up on injured reserve.

--LB Xavier Adibi played in just four games, mainly as a special teamer, last year. Despite holes to fill at linebacker, the team sees little to no priority in re-signing him.

--WR Greg Camarillo has already been told the team has no interest in re-signing him.

--LB E.J. Henderson is a long-time team leader that won't return. He turns 32 in August. Physically, he's beat up and does not fit the team's youth movement.

--LS Matt Katula won't be re-signed. He was brought in just to finish the season after regular long snapper Cullen Loeffler was injured.

--OL Scott Kooistra spent the season on injured reserve after fracturing a bone in his neck during the preseason.

--S Jarrad Page was a late-season stopgap signing because of injuries; he's unlikely to be brought back. Signed a minor-league contract with the Los Angeles Dodgers.

--CB Benny Sapp at 31 he doesn't fit the team's youth movement and won't be brought back.

--TE Visanthe Shiancoe turns 32 in June and won't return.

UNRESTRICTED FREE AGENTS (not tendered offers)

--RB Lorenzo Booker (not tendered offer as RFA) is not a high priority as a little-used No. 3 running back and an average kickoff returner who takes some of that workload off Percy Harvin.
