Jaguars waived OT DeMarcus Love.

Love is still only 25 years old, but it's always a bad sign for an offensive lineman when he gets waived by an offensive line-needy team.

Vikings waived G/T DeMarcus Love.

Love came off a four-game PED suspension on Tuesday, but the Vikes are moving on. Injuries have prevented the 2011 sixth-round pick from ever appearing in a game.

NFL suspended Vikings G/T DeMarcus Love four games for violating the league's policy on performance-enhancing drugs.

Love, a 2011 sixth-round pick out of Arkansas, has never appeared in a regular season game, and his 2012 season was lost due to a torn pectoral. The Vikings don't have a ton of offensive line depth, but Love's spot is in jeopardy.

Vikings G/T DeMarcus Love will undergo season-ending pectoral surgery.

A sixth-round pick last season, Love failed to get into a game, and underwent scopes on both knees in January. An early-career debacle in terms of health, Love will be facing an uphill battle for a roster spot next summer.

Vikings G/T DeMarcus Love had both of his knees scoped earlier this month.

Love successfully had bone spurs removed from his knees. He should be fine for any OTAs. The 2011 sixth-round pick was inactive for all 16 games this season.

Fox Sports' Adam Caplan believes sixth-round pick DeMarcus Love may be talented enough to eventually serve as the Vikings' starting left tackle.

Love fell to the sixth round thanks to an up-and-down senior year at Arkansas and poor Senior Bowl showing. Nevertheless, Caplan says he "had a much higher draft grade from several teams," and may have the upside to one day replace Bryant McKinnie. As for 2011, GM Rick Spielman has said Love will serve as a "swing" tackle.

Vikings GM Rick Spielman indicated that No. 168 overall pick DeMarcus Love will be a "swing" tackle in Minnesota.

We thought Love would move inside to guard because he isn't very athletic, but Spielman indicated otherwise. "He’s played both on the left and right side," Spielman said. "He was a weakside tackle down at Arkansas. ... You see the position flexibility that he does have." Love is 6-foot-5 and 318 pounds. He has 35-inch arms, helping his chances of staying outside.

Vikings selected Arkansas OG DeMarcus Love with the No. 168 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

A three-year starter at both tackle spots as well as guard, Love was highly regarded entering last season. His play was spotty throughout the season, however, and he struggled in the Senior Bowl. The Vikes obviously like his experience and ideal guard size, and he could end up fighting Chris DeGeare for playing time as a rookie.
