07:22 PM ET 05.20 | With the addition of cornerback Xavier Rhodes, the Minnesota Vikings are expected to have a more physical defense. Cornerback Chris Cook, in a interview on 1500 ESPN Twin Cities, hints the team will have a different look schematically on defense. "I definitely know we're going to play a lot more press coverage, because we have two big guys on the outside now," Cook said. "Coach (Leslie) Frazier likes those type of guys on the outside. Everybody seems to like bigger guys on the outside now, and it's because of the big receivers now." With Cook, 6-2, and Rhodes, 6-1, the Vikings will have a pair of outside corners that are big and physical. The Vikings' defense is primarily labeled as a Tampa-2 defense, but began mixing up a lot of man and press coverage last season.

The article is right, big corners are not usually associated with Tampa 2. But the aggressive play is.
