RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks

2014

Subscribe now to see our 2014 outlook.

2013

Sanford turned around his career last season after replacing an injured Mistral Raymond at free safety and never let go of the starting job. He forced four fumbles and had 66 total tackles in 16 games.

2012

Sanford will compete with Robert Blanton and Mistral Raymond for the starting free safety job. He struggled in coverage last year and had just 44 tackles in 15 games along with two interceptions.

2011

Sanford is in competition with Tyrell Johnson and Mistral Raymond for the starting free safety job after the release of Madieu Williams.

2009

The rookie out of Ole Miss will not be an impact in the 2009 season in any IDP league. He is listed as the third-string strong safety on the Vikings depth chart behind Tyrell Johnson and Husain Abdullah.
