NFL Free Agency Rumors: Minnesota Vikings inquire about Lamarr Houston


Defensive end Lamarr Houston is one of the best free agents on the market and is expected to have several suitors.

On Sundya, a report surfaced that the Green Bay Packers have interest in signing Houston away from the Oakland Raiders.

One of the Packers’ NFC North rivals, the Minnesota Vikings are also interested signing the four-year veteran, but actually reaching a deal with Houston seems unlikely.

The Raiders drafted Houston in the second round of the 2010 NFL draft with the 44th overall pick. The former Texas Longhorns’ star was solid from the get-go, recording 39 tackles, 5.0 sacks and a forced fumble in his rookie season.

Last season, Houston had 69 tackles, 6.0 sacks, two forced fumbles and a fumble recovery.

The Raiders are interested in bringing Houston back and may have an advantage if they decide to open their wallet because Houston is originally from nearby San Francisco.
