The Minnesota Vikings have gone ahead and added yet another defender in free agency, and it’s Chandon Sullivan this time around. The Vikings also announced that they had signed the cornerback for a single-year contract. The financial terms for the contract have not yet been disclosed to the public.
Sullivan had been undrafted out of the Georgia State University in 2018- and then had spent the first NFL season of his career with the Philadelphia Eagles. He first started with the practice squad and was elevated midway through the season.
Chandon Sullivan Could Solve A Lot Of Problems For the Vikings
After that Chandon Sullivan spent the next three seasons with the Green Back Packers, where he appeared in 48 out of 49 regular-season games. Sullivan had also started 10 games in each of the last couple of seasons. Sullivan comes primarily as a slot cornerback, and as it currently turns out, he is probably at the top of the chart for depth for the Vikings in that particular category along with Mackensie Alexander not returning for another season. He has also been credited with five interceptions over the last three seasons- which include three in 2021.
While the Minnesota Vikings have a lot to do to fill in the gap at the cornerback position, the signing of Chandon Sullivan does put them on the right track. Let’s see where the team from the East finally ends up at.
