Vikings, Sapp Agree To Terms

Posted Mar 9, 2010

The Vikings have agreed to terms with 7th-year CB Benny Sapp.

Sapp is coming off a career year in which he was a key component in the Vikings run to the NFC Championship Game. He started a career-best 7 games, including a 6-game stretch where he filled in admirably for injured starter Antoine Winfield, totaling 25 tackles, 2 pass breakups and 2 forced fumbles in that time. Sapp started both playoff games at nickel back for the Vikings and posted a career-high 55 tackles during the regular season while also making 5 tackles on special teams.

The former Northern Iowa standout joined the Vikings as an unrestricted free agent from Kansas City in 2008 and immediately contributed to Minnesota’s defense in his first season with the team, producing a career-best 2 interceptions, starting 5 games and serving as the team’s nickel back in the second half of the season.
