Vikings | Audie Cole expects to compete for starting job

Minnesota Vikings LB Audie Cole said he expects to compete for the starting middle linebacker during offseason workouts and training camp. "When I left in January, the coaches made it pretty clear there was no one who really owned that [middle linebacker] spot. And they told me I'd have to bring it during the offseason and into camp to earn it," Cole said. "That's what I'm now fighting to do. I understand our roster situation right now. And I'm also aware that nothing is going to be handed to me. … I feel like there's an open playing field and it's my chance to prove myself."
