After a weekend spent locking up Matt Cassel, Everson Griffen and bringing back Jasper Brinkley, the Vikings weren't done spending. Minnesota re-signed special teamer and linebacker Larry Dean, the team announced Monday morning.
Dean was second on the team in special teams tackles in 2013, according to the Vikings. He recorded a career-high 13 tackles. He's also proven to be reliably durable.
