Vikings sign linebacker Greer Martini, safety Jordan Martin

The Vikings are AAF AF.

The Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday signed two more former players from the AAF. For those of you keeping track, that’s five members of the former Alliance of American Football league have now joined the Vikings. All five play defense.

Linebacker Greer Martini, 23, played for the Salt Lake Stallions of the AAF. He was teammate of defensive end Karter Schult, who the Vikings signed Tuesday. Martini finished fifth in the AAF with 55 tackles.

Martini (6-4, 235) played college football at Notre Dame. He joined the Packers as an undrafted free agent last spring and spent a short time of the season on Green Bay’s practice squad. His contract is reportedly a one-year deal for the minimum $495,000, which will not affect the team’s salary cap due to the top-51 rule.

Jordan Martin, 24, played for the San Diego Fleet of the AAF. According to Vikings.com, Martin recorded 17 tackles, four passes defended and one interception in eight games. Martin (6-2, 212) played three seasons of college football at Toledo and one at Syracuse. It should be noted that the Vikings listed Martin as a defensive back. He has experience playing both cornerback and safety.
