The Minnesota Vikings did not lose many pieces to their defense this off-season, which is just two years removed from being the league's best unit.
A big part of their success was do to the play of their secondary, which lost a backup to suspension today. Holton Hill, a reserve cornerback, has been suspended for violating the NFL's policy on performance-enhancing drugs. He'll miss the first four games of the upcoming season.
