  • Vikings' Jayron Kearse: Won't move to linebacker
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kearse will compete for playing time at safety and nickel cornerback when Organized Team Activities begin Tuesday and won't be switching to weakside linebacker, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. "Last year, I played the nickel, but that was all off of instincts," Kearse said. "Now, I had time to work at it knowing I'll be in that role and playing that position." A report earlier in April said he could move to linebacker, but it looks like Kearse will return to the role he had last season. Kearse could win significant snaps at slot corner with a strong training camp.

  • Vikings' Jayron Kearse: Gets time at nickel
    By RotoWire Staff

    Kearse played 22 snaps on defense Sunday and got time at nickelback with Mackensie Alexander (ankle) and Trae Waynes (knee) sidelined. Kearse is a safety, but his flexibility to play some cornerback in a pinch is a beneficial asset to Minnesota's defense. He'll likely return to a reserve role this week, as the Vikings will likely make another cornerback active for the game.

  • Kearse missed Saturday's preseason game against the Jaguars due to general "nicks and bruises," Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports. Kearse, who has spent much of the past two seasons on special teams for the Vikings, is competing for a roster spot at strong safety behind starter Andrew Sendejo (calf). Kearse's absence from Saturday's tilt due to seemingly minor issues could allow for Tray Matthews, Anthony Harris and Jack Tocho to increase their workloads.
