KSTP's Darren Wolfson has learned that free-agent defensive tackle Henry Melton is expected to visit the Vikings on Thursday.

Melton, 27, was slapped with the franchise tag by Chicago last offseason. He made the Pro Bowl in 2012.

Just three games into the 2013 season, he tore his ACL. That's probably the reason he's still available.

The Vikings signed defensive tackle Linval Joseph away from the Giants on Tuesday, but are still seeking depth at the position.
