Vikings Lost PS Player, Add Replacement

Yesterday, the Washington Redskins swiped defensive back Domonique Johnson off of the Vikings practice squad by adding him to their active roster.

Today, the Vikings replaced Johnson with defensive back Reggie Jones in his second year out of Portland State.

The addition of Jones is likely to never have much impact on the Vikings, but you never know with these guys, he could develop into a fine young player.

Jones has one of the more horrific childhood stories that I have ever heard.  According to this report, his mother was put in prison at a very young age after she lit his father on fire while Jones and his two siblings were sleeping. 

Jones’ father screamed to him for help but ended up burning to death while Jones got his sisters out of the house.
