Posted by: Master Tesfatsion under Vikings Updated: January 14, 2014 - 10:18 PM

The Mike Zimmer watch is underway.

The Bengals defensive coordinator had his second interview with the Vikings on Tuesday. He was spotted at the Cincinnati airport this morning.

Update: Zimmer arrived at Winter Park around 11 a.m. Let the interview begin. 

Zimmer is actually scheduled to be in Minnesota until Thursday morning. So this could drag on a while ...

Final update: Zimmer headed to his hotel room and spoke briefly ... when asked if he had a job offer, he said "No."

That's it for today.  Our story summing it all up is here.
