The Minnesota Vikings aren't done adding bodies to a defensive line that plans to attack quarterbacks in waves.
NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Tuesday that the team has agreed to terms with former New York Giants tackle Linval Joseph on a five-year, $31.5 million contract, according to a source informed of Minnesota's plans.
We like the addition on the heels of re-signing pass rusher Everson Griffen. Joseph, No. 25 on our top 101 free agent list, gives the Vikings a solid run-stopper with the ability to create inside pressure, something Zimmer regularly saw from his defensive tackles in Cincinnati.
Joseph figures to see plenty of time alongside Floyd for a Vikings defense that bled points and yardage last season, but has wasted no time locking down two young players just now entering their primes.
