Vikings sign two to futures contracts

Posted by: Chris Miller under Vikings, Bears, Vikings off the field Updated: January 9, 2013 - 3:36 PM

The Vikings signed T.J. Conley and Greg McCoy to futures contracts today.

Conley was the Jets' punter in 2011, averaging 42.7 yards. He was cut by the Jets in September, just five days before the season started, and didn't play in the NFL in 2012. He announced his signing on Twitter (@tjconley4).

McCoy, a 5-foot-10 cornerback, was drafted in the seventh round by the Bears in 2012 out of TCU.  He spent most of the season on the Arizona Cardinals' practice squad after the Bears cut him in August.
