Vikings Sign CB Jacob LaceyThe Minnesota Vikings announced the signing of cornerback Jacob Lacey on Monday, as noted by Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun. Lacey was one of the better cornerbacks available on the open market.

A quick gander on Lacey from PFF has him with a -4.8 coverage grade. So sub par, but an upgrade on Sherels (he might have had a -4.8 the second half against GB Week 17 alone...) and competition for Robinson and Jefferson. Good depth move I guess but nothing else.
Edit: that is from 2011 season with Indy. I'll try and find last year's.

Has he played much nickel?

I think this is a camp fodder / depth move.
we should see a lot of this as teams stock pile bodies to find those depth players, maybe even some rare gem sitting somewhere.

Nothing wrong with adding depth at positions we were weak in last year. Let them compete

I'm not sure I like them adding more bodies to the roster going into camp for this position. Again, we have 3 on the roster with starting experience (Cook, Jeff, Rob) and a real promising prospect drafted this year that should be able to start. Why do you need all the other cats to figure out who the 5th guy is going to be? Heck, my guess is Blanton could step back and play CB if asked and be better than this cat.
