Vikings add cornerback

Posted by: Mark Craig under Vikings, Vikings off the field, Vikings players, Visanthe Shiancoe, Vikings roster moves, Vikings training camp Updated: August 11, 2011 - 9:19 AM

The Vikings signed cornerback Tony Carter this morning.

Carter played college football at Florida State, and was undrafted in 2009 before signing with Denver as a free agent. He played two games for the Broncos, and was waived/injured at the end of training camp in 2010.  The Patriots added him to their practice squad a week later. He was active for two games last season.

The Patriots released Carter two weeks ago.

The Vikings were a player shy after Marcell Gipson was cut earlier this week.

Tight end Visanthe Shiancoe is not practicing today. We'll have an update when practice ends at 11:30.  It's the final practice at Mankato that is open to the media and the public.  The team will stay over tonight, then leave tomorrow for Tennessee.
