The Roster Never Sleeps
[size=14pt]Vikings sign free agent rookie LB John Kerr
Just got back from the HIKE Foundationâ€™s fifth annual celebrity golf classic, hosted by Matt Birk, and found out the Vikings made a minor roster move. They signed free agent rookie LB John Kerr, who played collegiately at Ohio State. Here is Kerrâ€™s college bio. One guess is that Kerr provides an extra body in Organized Training Activities this week while LB Dontarrious Thomas rehabs some bruised ribs.
Birkâ€™s tournament, meanwhile, was attended by Vikings LG Steve Hutchinson, PK Ryan Longwell and former fourth-down C Mike Morris, among others. The HIKE Foundation helps Twin Cities kids get through school. from elementary through college. It plans to invest $500,000 toward that endeavor over the next 10 or so years.
