Pitts about ready to workout for teams

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings offense, Anthony Herrera Updated: July 15, 2010 - 2:03 PM

Free-agent offensive lineman Chester Pitts, who is recovering from microfracture surgery on his right knee, should be ready to workout for teams starting next week, according to his agent Andrew Kessler.

Pitts, 31, told Sirius NFL Radio earlier this offseason that five teams, including the Vikings, had expressed interest in him and at that time he indicated he planned to workout for the teams today.

It's not certain if Pitts will now workout for  teams all at the same time or if he will workout for teams at their facilities.

It also isn't clear if the Vikings remain in the mix for Pitts, who has drawn interest from Detroit, Philadelphia, San Francisco and Seattle. Pitts would be a potential fit with the Vikings as a backup guard and could get an opportunity to challenge right guard Anthony Herrera for a starting spot.

On another note, the NFL Supplemental draft will be held this afternoon. The Vikings are not expected to participate.
