The Vikings are expected to demote FS Jamarca Sanford into a special teams-only role in 2012.
Sanford "earned" the opportunity to start in 2011 after beating out Tyrell Johnson in camp, but he flopped in the secondary. Per ESPN 1500's Tom Pelissero, Sanford allowed 20 of the 31 passes thrown at him to be completed (64.5 percent) for 344 yards and eight touchdowns. He also missed too many open-field tackles. Per Pelissero, Sanford "confirmed he's just a special teamer."
