The Vikings made a series of roster moves on Tuesday, with the most significant being the addition of RB Lorenzo Booker. Vikings Interim Head Coach Leslie Frazier said on Monday that the team was looking to sign Booker and they are hopeful the former Florida State University standout can contribute immediately, perhaps on 3rd-down situations.
To make room for Booker, the Vikings waived/injured RB Albert Young and placed him on Injured Reserve. In addition to those moves, the Vikings also waived C Adrian Martinez from the practice squad and added QB R.J. Archer to the practice. Archer was with the Vikings during the offseason program last summer.
Booker was selected in the 3rd round of the 2007 NFL Draft by the Miami Dolphins. He spent the 2008 season with the Philadelphia Eagles and was a member of the UFL’s Hartford Colonials in 2010.
Note: An earlier version of this entry noted that Albert Young had been waived. He’s actually been waived/injured and has been placed on Injured Reserve.
