The Minnesota Vikings had one of the worst defenses in the entire NFL in 2013. With a new defensive minded head coach in Mike Zimmer, the team is starting to add pieces on that side of the ball.
Derek Cox has a new home. Former Chargers cornerback has agreed to a one-year deal with the Vikings, source said.

The Chargers signed Cox to a four-year, $20 million deal exactly one year ago. Unfortunately 2013 was a total bomb for Cox, forcing San Diego to cut bait and release him earlier this month. Prior to that stint Cox looked like a great corner as a member of the Jacksonville Jaguars from 2009-2012. He will look to get back on track with Minnesota on a show-me deal next season.
