Vikings re-signed CB Marcus Sherels to a two-year, $2.2 million contract.
He gets $500,000 guaranteed, including a $300,000 signing bonus. Sherels was entering restricted free agency. He's returned a punt for a touchdown in back-to-back seasons. Ideally, Sherels' defensive participation will go down under new coach Mike Zimmer. He's never been an effective cover man. Fri, Mar 7, 2014 03:39:00 PM

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.
