Sapp to return

March 9th, 2009 – 1:29 PM by Judd Zulgad

The Vikings re-signed cornerback Benny Sapp to a one-year deal this weekend. The terms were not disclosed but Sapp is expected to make above the minimum of $620,000 for a six-year veteran. Sapp joined the Vikings as a free agent last offseason after spending his first four seasons with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Sapp saw extensive time during the second half of the season when he played in the nickel defense after cornerback Charles Gordon suffered a season-ending injury. Sapp finished with 22 tackles, two interceptions and four pass breakups.

As for the visit that Vikings fullback Naufahu Tahi took to Cincinnati last week, I was told no offer has been made by the Bengals but the team does have interest in the restricted free agent. The Bengals have Packers fullback John Kuhn, another restricted free agent, in for a visit today.
