I think it has to do with blocking schemes. The Steelers are moving to a zone blocking scheme (which is why they brought in Munchak) and the Vikings used it, so Saxon has experience with it. The new OC in ViQueenLand (Bill Musgrave) has talked about moving to a power running game and Wilson has experience with that. From that perspective the swap makes sense, although I think the decision by the Vikes to change blocking schemes (if they do) is a bad one.
