RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Sendejo is the leading candidate to retain his starting safety job next to Smith, but he faces competition from Michael Griffin, Antone Exum, Anthony Harris and Jayron Kearse. He's a solid tackler, but has struggled at times in coverage.
Sendejo took over as the starter last December after Robert Blanton started 13 games, but he's not guaranteed a starting role again. He will compete with Blanton, Tayor Mays, Antone Exum and Anthony Harris for a starting safety role next to Harrison Smith this summer.
Sendejo has mostly been a special teams player in his career, but he finally got playing time in the secondary last season after the injury to Harrison Smith and made a decent impression when in the starting lineup. He'll likely win a top reserve role as a result.
Will serve as a backup at safety and contribute on special teams.
Sendejo went undrafted at Rice and then played in the UFL and bounced around two NFL practice squads. With Minnesota's wide open competition at safety, he could actually win a significant role.
