(Eagan, MN) — The Minnesota Vikings are primed to make their first move in free agency. The team is expected to sign former Bills defensive tackle Harrison Phillips to a three-year deal worth 19-and-a-half million dollars when the league year officially begins on Wednesday. Phillips started eight of the 14 games he played in last season and made 51 tackles with one sack. Additionally, the Vikings are also expected to release defensive tackle Michael Pierce, a move that will clear up over six million dollars in cap space. The team also tendered a one-year contract to kicker Greg Joseph, a move that allows the Vikings to match any offer Joseph receives in free agency.
