Vikings add on Defense and prevent a subtraction

The Minnesota Vikings have shored up their Defense with two signings on Tuesday.  Minnesota added secondary depth by nabbing former Chicago Bears corner back Zack Bowman on a one year deal.  Bowman showed great read and recognition skills when he burst on the scene in 2009 with 6 picks and 10 deflections.  He has not however been able to reproduce that level of performance over the past two seasons and lost his starting position in 2010 to Tim Jennings.

The Vikings kept Outside Linebacker Erin Henderson from escaping by inking the 4 year pro to a one year deal.  Henderson was fourth on the Vikings in 2011 with 91 tackles, he also had 8 tackles for loss in his first full time stint as a starter.
