Henderson, released by the Vikings on Feb. 7, also faces five charges in connection with a Jan. 1 incident and is scheduled to appear in court Monday. Henderson is scheduled to appear April 29 on the November charges.
“We want to make big plays, we want to be an explosive offense, and we want to run the ball,” Turner said at his introductory press conference. With an offense that includes Peterson, receiver Greg Jennings and all-purpose threat Cordarrelle Patterson, Turner believes Minnesota can improve quickly.
“I looked at the roster, I looked at the offensive side of the ball," he said. "I think this is a group that can be real good, and I think we can be good real fast.”
Cox finished the 2013 season with the Chargers with one interception and 38 tackles, a disappointing season after he had four picks and 60 tackles in just 12 games the year before.
Greenway placed 10th in the NFL in tackles last season with 134, but managed just three sacks. He has exceeded 100 tackles in six of the last seven years.
Rudolph is entering the final year of his rookie contract. He said Tuesday that the team, which still has approximately $10 million in salary cap space after a busy offseason, has not approached him about a contract extension.
"I've really enjoyed my time here, from the top down, in our organization," Rudolph said. "I think we have the best owners in football. They're willing to do anything for us to win. Everybody in the front office, the new staff, I really like the direction this team is going in. I'm excited to be a part of that future."
Rudolph is hoping to bounce back after he was limited to eight games in 2013 because of a fracture in his left foot. He caught 30 passes for 313 yards and three touchdowns before injuring his foot in a Week 9 loss to the Cowboys.
He has been studying tape of the Browns from last season so he can get a feel for how he will be utilized in new coordinator Norv Turner's offense. Tight ends such as Jay Novacek, Antonio Gates and Jordan Cameron produced impressive numbers in three different decades with Turner calling the plays.
"I hope to fall in line with that," Rudolph said. "I'm excited to get into this offense."
In 2013, Sherels appeared in all 16 games and started a career-high four contests. Sherels set the Vikings single-season record with a punt return average of 15.2 yards per return, ranking second in the NFL. His two career punt return touchdowns are tied for most in Vikings history.
Cassel started in six games and appeared in nine for the Vikings last season, completing 153 of 254 passes for 11 touchdowns and nine interceptions over that span.
"Had a good visit and gonna see what happens!" Williams said via text message.
The report says Williams, who arrived in New York on Monday night, has not ruled out playing what would be a 12th NFL season after spending the first 11 with the Vikings. The Giants were the first team to bring Williams in for a visit.
Munnerlyn spent the first five seasons of his career with the Panthers, recording seven interceptions in 77 games. He had a knack for big plays last season, scoring two touchdowns on interceptions, picking up 3.5 sacks and racking up 74 tackles while playing all 16 games.
Johnson, who played defensive end in the Saints' 3-4 scheme, had interest from the Cowboys, Bears, Dolphins and Seahawks in addition to the Vikings.
Freeman spent last season with the Buccaneers and Vikings. His only appearance for Minnesota was against the Giants, and he completed 20 of 53 passes for 190 yards and an interception.
Freeman will try and make the final roster for the Giants as a backup to Eli Manning, who is coming off ankle surgery this offseason. The Giants also have Curtis Painter and Ryan Nassib on the roster.
Johnson has started all but one game over the last three years for the Vikings.
Peterson has 29 or more catches in four of his last five seasons with one receiving score in each of his last four years. Catching passes is a big part of Norv Turner's offenses, so it's something Peterson could end up doing more of.
Minnesota was limited offensively, scoring just twice. Walsh did have two extra point attempts, but did not have another opportunity.
Sendejo has totaled 73 tackles (44 solo) through 13 games.
Coleman will try to make the final roster in Minnesota as a reserve defensive back and play on special teams.
Robison finished with three solo tackles (two solo), raising his season total to 31 tackles (21 solo) through 13 games.
Ellison's only other two catches this year came Week 12 against the Packers. Banyard hadn't recorded a catch all season.
Greenway was able to practice in full all week despite a wrist injury. Smith was limited with a toe injury that sidelined him for eight straight games before he returned last week.
Newly acquired quarterback Josh Freeman headlines the list, and is joined by offensive lineman Jeff Baca, linebackers Audie Cole and Gerald Hodges, defensive back Mistral Raymond, and defensive linemen Chase Baker and Justin Trattou.
He's in for a much bigger role in 2014.
Minnesota could select a quarterback with the No. 8 overall pick. The Vikes also have met with Matt Cassel in an effort to re-sign the free agent.
