Vikings re-signed exclusive rights free agent CB/PR Marcus Sherels to a one-year, $555,000 contract.

Sherels, 25, appeared in all 16 games as the Vikings' punt returner in 2012, but he played just 78 snaps on defense. He averaged 9.0 yards per return, and brought one 77 yards to the house.

Vikings CB Marcus Sherels has won the team's primary punt return job.

Greg Camarillo will be Sherels' backup on punts, probably catching a few when the Vikings are backed up in their own zone. Sherels beat out Camarillo and Jaymar Johnson for the job. He's also the Vikings' No. 5 cornerback.

CB Marcus Sherels and WR Jaymar Johnson are the front-runners for the Vikings' punt return job.

Sure-handed veteran Greg Camarillo could also be used for a fair catch deep in Vikings territory. Kick return jobs can be especially hard to predict because the primary candidates may be on the roster bubble, as is the case with all three players mentioned here.
