Vikings Co-DC Adam Zimmer addresses options for Minnesota at nickel corner

Jack White, Vikings Wire

The Vikings return a player who has good experience at nickel corner: Mike Hughes.

Despite this, Minnesota co-defensive coordinator Adam Zimmer said he won’t necessarily be the slot corner for the Vikings in 2020.

“Mike has done a good job in the past (at slot) and also has played well outside,” he said, via Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press.

According to Andrew Krammer, Zimmer went on to mention a few names who could play in the slot for the team. As expected, Hughes is an option, but Zimmer also brought up Jeff Gladney and Mark Fields, per Krammer.

“We’ll give a few guys opportunities to see what they can do and find the best combination,” Zimmer said.

Gladney makes sense. He’s a physical corner and a first-round draft pick. But Fields was an interesting option for Zimmer to bring up.

Fields signed with the Chiefs as an undrafted free agent in 2019. Kansas City then traded him to Minnesota for a 2021 seventh-round pick. If Fields is able to win the nickel corner spot, it’d be a nice story.
