Vikings Tender 7 Players, Including Rice, Edwards

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have tendered qualifying offers to seven players, including wide receiver Sidney Rice, safety Husain Abdullah, defensive end Ray Edwards and linebacker Erin Henderson.

The others who received offers Thursday were offensive lineman Ryan Cook, safety Eric Frampton and defensive end Brian Robison.

The Vikings confirmed the offers on their website to players with five or fewer years of experience with expiring contracts. The tenders are one-year offers, at varying levels of salary and compensation in return for a player signing elsewhere.

Statuses could change in a new collective bargaining agreement.

Eligible players not tendered are wide receiver Hank Baskett, defensive lineman Fred Evans, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, fullback Naufahu Tahi and running back Albert Young.
