Former New Orleans Saints defensive lineman Tom Johnson is at the Minnesota Vikings’ team facility in Eden Prairie, Minn., for a physical today, and will sign a one-year, $845,000 deal that could pay him up to another $600,000 in incentives, according to a league source.
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, according to the source, but the Vikings and Cowboys stood out as the best fits for Johnson at three-technique tackle.
He will be a very solid rotational player with Kevin Williams in Minnesota.
