After signing a pair of undrafted rookie free agents on Monday, the Vikings moved again on Tuesday to sign 3 more. All 3 players have Minnesota ties.
Former University of Minnesota Golden Gophers Cedric McKinley and Marcus Sherels as well as former Minnesota State, Mankato player Adrian Battles impressed the Vikings enough during last weekend’s rookie minicamp to merit roster spots as the club moves forward through its offseason program.
McKinley is a 6-6. 282-pound DE who played 2 seasons for the Gophers after playing for one of the nation’s top junior college football programs at Mississippi Gulf Coast. Sherels is a 5-11, 165-pound CB who also has return capabilities on special teams.
Battles was an anchor on the Mavericks offensive line for 4 seasons, starting 43 of a possible 46 games. The OT also has good size at 6-3, 308 pounds.
