Free-Agent-To-Be Henderson Aims To Return To Vikes

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — E.J. Henderson is one of a handful of notable Minnesota Vikings veterans who could be approaching their last game with the team this weekend.

Henderson and defensive tackle Kevin Williams were both drafted by the Vikings in 2003. They’re two of only three players currently on the roster who’ve been with the team that long. Retiring tight end Jim Kleinsasser is the other.

Vikings coach Leslie Frazier says he believes Henderson can still be a productive “16-game starter” in the NFL at his age. He’ll be 32 next season.
