The Star Tribune‘s Mark Craig is reporting that Chargers outside linebacker Ben Leber will visit the Vikings today and probably sign.
Craig quotes Leber’s agent–whose name is Jeff Nalley–saying: â€œThe way we work is the first team we visit is the team we feel weâ€™ll get a deal
done with that day…Seven teams called us [Friday] night. The Vikings are No. 1
on our list.â€
Leber is a four year veteran. He’s 6′ 3" and weighs 244 pounds. He played only nine games last year because of a foot injury, Craig reports. The previous three years, he played in all sixteen games. He had a career-high 69 tackles in 2003 and 5 sacks in his rookie year, 2002. He has never intercepted a pass.
He was picked by the Chargers in the third round–71st overall–in 2002.
The Chargers’ Web site has some in-depth, year-by-year, stats and season highlights as well as a feature on him.
