Little Brother LB: Erin Henderson In Line To Start

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — For the last four years, Erin Henderson has largely been known around the Minnesota Vikings as E.J. Henderson’s little brother.

This season, he might wind up starting at linebacker, right next to his older brother. Erin Henderson has come a long way since he went undrafted out of Maryland. He’s now filling the spot vacated by Ben Leber’s departure as a free agent.

According to STATS LLC, the Hendersons would be only the fifth pair of brothers to start a game for the same team together in the NFL in the last 20 years. Erin Henderson says he’s trying not to get ahead of himself but that this has been an exciting opportunity.

    Well, he had better be pretty good, because Ben Liber was a pretty good LB, and we cut him. So he had better make the MOST of this opportunity.
