The highest profile safety currently on the market is Indianapolis Colts strong safety Bob Sanders, who was recently cut and is making the rounds. At 29, Sanders is a seven year pro, having played all of them with Indianapolis. He stands 5’8″ and weighs 206 lbs.

The major issue with Sanders is his durability, or lack thereof. He’s never played in sixteen games in a season, let alone started all of them. He played at least 14 games in only two of his seven seasons. During his past three seasons, he’s played in only nine games.

During his career (48 games), Sanders has amassed 217 tackles, 73 assists, 2 forced fumbles, and 3.5 sacks. He’s made 6 interceptions and defended 13 passes but has not converted any turnovers into scores.

It doesn’t look like the Vikings are in any hurry to sign any free agents right now but for what it’s worth, here are Sanders’ highlights. Found at YouTube from mountiefan13.
