New York Jets’ free agent offensive lineman Vladimir Ducasse has been heavily criticized throughout his career.
When the Jets selected Ducasse with the 61st overall pick in the second round of the 2010, they knew the former Massachusetts Minutemen star was going to be a project.
However, they liked his enormous size (he’s currently 6’4.5 and 325 pounds) and knew he had a lot of potential they could tap into.
However, things just have not worked out. Ducasse has struggled and although the Jets had expressed some interest in re-signing Ducasse, it looks like they will not get the chance.
According to Kristian Dyer of the Metro New York Newspaper, the Minnesota Vikings will sign Ducasse.
Hearing from sources that the Vikings are likely to sign former #nyjets OL Vlad Ducasse. Chose Minnesota over offer from Bengals.

Ducasse, who originally projected as a tackle, entered the 2013 season as a starting guard for the Jets but lost his job to a rookie, Kent State product Brian Winters.
Terms of the deal between the Vikings and Ducasse have not been released.
