Vikings | Release of Remi Ayodele not linked to bounties

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman said Sunday, March 25, that the recent release of DL Remi Ayodele had nothing to do with the bounty situation with the New Orleans Saints, where he played for two seasons before landing with the Vikings last season. "This was purely based on a decision that didn't live up to billing and how he would fit into the scheme like we thought he would. Then, when he were able to (re-sign DL Letroy Guion) and (DL Fred Evans) back, we felt those guys were a better fit in what we were trying to do defensively than what Remi was for us last year," Spielman said. Ayodele also reportedly pushed back against the "tilt" technique coaches wanted him to play and ended up on the field for only 253 of 1,058 gradable snaps on defense (23.9 percent) and recorded just 22 tackles.
