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.
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.
Williams, who turns 34 in August, spent Monday night and Tuesday with the Giants.
"I'm not sure what's going to happen," Williams said. "I played 11 years in Minnesota. It didn't work out there, and this is my first visit with another team. I'm not sure how to feel. It's all new to me."
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, who finished last season with the Vikings after being cut by the Buccaneers, has also visited the Bears this offseason. The Giants could use Freeman as a veteran backup to Eli Manning ahead of second-year passer Ryan Nassib.
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.
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.
