Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer returned to the Vikings headquarters on Wednesday, the second day of his second interview.

Cincinnati Bengals defensive coordinator Mike Zimmer returned to Winter Park, the Vikings headquarters, on Wednesday.

It's his second day in Minnesota after undergoing a second interview with team's general manager Rick Spielman and ownership group.

The general belief is that if Minnesota asks Cardinals defensive coordinator Todd Bowles for a second interview, or any of the San Francisco 49ers assistants that they've already interviewed, that Zimmer would be out. However, it still appears likely that the Bengals defensive coordinator is the top candidate.

It was originally believed that Zimmer was going to get the job on Tuesday. But after a full day of interviews, the Vikings haven't offered him the position.

According to Ian Rapoport with the NFL Network, discussions on Tuesday was "all positive from both sides". No offer is made, nothing firm, but Vikings progressively becoming optimistic that he's their guy.
