The Vikings signed a defensive back Friday, but it wasn't a normal case of free-agent activity.

The team announced that defensive back Nicholas Taylor, a 5-10 rookie from Florida International, had been added to the roster.

Taylor, 25, was a college basketball player at FIU from 2007 to 2010 and had been playing in a lower-tier arena football league before running 40-yard dashes at the school's pro day this month. The Vikings gave the 5-10, 165-pounder a workout Friday and signed him.

Two Vikings free agents signed with other teams Friday.

Cornerback Cedric Griffin got a one-year deal with the Redskins that could be worth up to $2.5 million, according to his agent.

Special teamer Kenny Onatolu got a three-year deal with Carolina. That reunites Onatolu with former Vikings special teams coach and current Panthers special teams coach Brian Murphy.
