Sean Jensen, of the Pioneer Press, reports Minnesota Vikings RB Michael Bennett said Monday, Feb. 20, his tenure with the Vikings is over. "They told my agent they're going in another direction, so I won't be coming back," Bennett said in a phone interview. "It's disappointing, because you felt you established yourself there and you wanted to be one of those guys who stayed with a team throughout his whole career. But it didn't work out for me." With the expected departure of Bennett, the Vikings have just three running backs under contract: Mewelde Moore, Ciatrick Fason and Adimchinobe Echemandu. Bennett said he has been working out diligently, "just in case I need to go audition somewhere." His preferences are Green Bay, which is closer to his hometown of Milwaukee, and Arizona, which is coached by Dennis Green, who drafted Bennett for the Vikings.
