A number of fairly substantial moves have been made around the league in recent days, but none of them have involved the Vikings.
Still, don’t think that the front office is just sleeping on the job.
As proof of their consciousness, the Vikings opted to sign offensive tackle Kevin Murphy for the second time this offseason.
The Niners picked up the Harvard player as an undrafted free agent but then waived him. I actually got pretty excited when the Vikings used their waiver priority to beat out the Texans and the Lions to nab Murphy off the wires.
A day later, however, the Vikings waived Murphy because of some health issue that came up during his physical. Today’s signing, however, should indicate that Murphy is now healthy enough to compete for a backup position on the offensive line.
The Vikings waived offensive tackle Darrion Weems to make room for Murphy.
