Minneapolis, MN (KROC-AM News) - The Minnesota Vikings are keeping Rochester's Marcus Sherels on the roster for the 2018 season.

Sherels will enter his 9th season as a Minnesota Viking coming off a season during which he led the NFL with 39 punt returns. His average return on those punts was 9.5 yards. He also averaged over 24 yards on each of his 11 kick-off returns in 2017.
