Vikings restricted free agent fullback Naufahu Tahi has received a one-year, $1.4-million offer from the Cincinnati Bengals. The Vikings have seven days to match the offer, so, tick-tock, boys.
The Vikings gave Tahi the low tender of $1.01 million heading into free agency. The Vikings have been linked to the “Weaver Watch” — the chase for Seattle free agent fullback Leonard Weaver — but the guy’s name has yet to come up inside the walls at Winter Park.
For a mere $390,000 more than they wanted to pay Naufahu, the Vikings could have their Tahi. If they don’t match, the Vikings wouldn’t receive any compensation because Tahi was undrafted.
Update: Our friends at ESPN report Seattle free agent fullback Leonard Weaver has signed with the Eagles.
