[size=14pt]Vikings sign free agent rookie LB John Kerr

Just got back from the HIKE Foundation’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 Kerr’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.

Birk’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.
