    Vikings Sign Linebacker

    The Minnesota Vikings have released OL Steve Edwards and signed LB Marquis Cooper. Cooper is a 3rd-year veteran who played in Tampa Bay. He was a 3rd-round pick out of Washington in 2004 and has excelled on special teams where he has 27 career tackles. The team also added rookie DE Jayme Mitchell to the practice squad

    No, as it says we released Edwards again. That was a short visit for him.

    Thanks to PPE for the sig.

    lmao, we released the OL that we picked up yesterday.

    So, pretty much that was just a waste of money.

    Offensive lineman Steve Edwards must have set a record for fewest hours as a Viking. The team released him today – ONE day after signing him – to make room for free agent linebacker Marquis Cooper.

    Cooper spent the past two seasons with Tampa Bay, where current Vikings defensive coordinator Mike Tomlin was the defensive backs coach. We’ll let you know if he makes to practice tomorrow.

    In another move, defensive end Jayme Mitchell passed through waivers and was signed to the practice squad.

    He was on the team for less time than Jeff George was on the Raiders.

    You sure did.
    But you had no links and it's from a different media source.
    That's what happens here, a story breaks and the media-take/discussions follow.

    Re: Vikings Sign Linebacker

    Good signing, he did well for Tampa.He is infact pretty solid on special teams and he will help us out depth wise.He knows the system, and I think the only reason Tampa bay got rid of him is becuz they got alot more younger LB's in there, playing for less money.And thier on the same skill level, so they dumped him.

    Theres NOTHING greater then a Florida Gator!
