2014 NFL Free Agency: Offensive Guard Vladimir Ducasse Signs With Vikings

The former New York Jets guard received some interest from the Bengals this offseason, but has opted to sign with the Minnesota Vikings.

Strike another name off of the Bengals' potential free agent list. Former New York Jets offensive guard Vladimir Ducasse visited the Cincinnati Bengals about a week and a half ago as a potential landing spot for the veteran. According to reports, Ducasse moved on from Cincinnati and signed a one-year deal with the Minnesota Vikings, who are now headed by former Bengals defensive coordinator, Mike Zimmer.

Ducasse likely had to look for a job elsewhere when Cincinnati signed former Packers offensive lineman Marshall Newhouse. The Bengals' staff loves versatility in their linemen and they likely felt that Newhouse's ability to play both guard and tackle made him a better depth option than Ducasse in their system.

Ducasse was a former second round pick out of Massachusetts and started four games last season. It was the most in his career, though he played in all 16 games the past three seasons.
