Saints signed FB Zach Line.

Line spent the last two years as Adrian Peterson's lead blocker in Minnesota. He had offseason hip surgery, but is fully recovered. With John Kuhn the favorite for fullback duties, Line is likely just training camp depth.

Impending free agent FB Zach Line underwent hip cleanup surgery after the season.

It sounds like a minor scope. Line is still on crutches but should be ready for a mostly-normal offseason. Line was in on 211 snaps as a lead blocker last season. He has five touchdowns over the past three years.

The Vikings tendered an offer to restricted free agent FB Zach Line.

He's undoubtedly been tendered at the "low" level, $1.6 million. A 2013 undrafted free agent, Line emerged as the Vikings' lead blocker last season, playing 223 snaps.

Vikings waived FB Zach Line.

The move clears a roster spot for Joe Banyard. Line will likely be signed to the practice squad if he clears waivers.

Vikings RB Zach Line underwent shoulder surgery during his "redshirt" rookie season.

Line was placed on I.R. with a September knee injury, but took the opportunity to have his shoulder repaired. A favorite of measurables-based football metrics sites, Line stands 6-foot, 232 and ran 4.65 at his Pro Day. He's been compared to Mike Alstott. Line is a player to monitor during his first full NFL offseason as a potential in-house replacement for free agent Toby Gerhart at No. 2 tailback.

Vikings placed FB Zach Line on injured reserve with a knee injury, ending his season.

Line's exact "injury" is unclear, though conveniently timed as it clears a roster spot for FB Jerome Felton, who comes off suspension Monday. An undrafted free agent, Line ends his rookie year having played 68 snaps.

Vikings signed SMU H-back Zach Line.

Line (6-foot 1/2, 232) earned 2012 C-USA Offensive Player of the Year honors as a senior and was a versatile workhorse in June Jones' spread offense throughout his career, rushing 778 times for 4,185 yards (5.38 YPC) and 47 touchdowns. He caught 75 passes. Line runs 4.77 with a 9-foot-3 broad jump, so he lacks explosive measurables. A hybrid fullback/tailback, Line may follow a similar career path to Brian Leonard.
