On Tuesday afternoon the Vikings re-signed a familiar face to fortify defensive line depth and they reached agreement on a free agent contract with a new player to beef up the RB stable.
DT Letroy Guion, who hit the open market last week, was re-signed by the Vikings and figures to be a regular member of the DL rotation under new position coach Brendan Daly. Guion was a 5th-round pick of the Vikings out of Florida State in 2008 and will turn just 25 years old in June.
The Vikings also signed RB Jerome Felton, who was also selected in the 5th round out of Furman in the 2008 NFL Draft. He was selected by the Detroit Lions and played there for three seasons. He’s also spent time with the Carolina Panthers and Indianapolis Colts. Interestingly, Felton’s Mother, Sabrina, is German and was a former professional gymnast and his brother, Simon, served in Afghanistan with US Army.
