The Vikings signed Troy Stoudermire and Tre Roberson today.
Stoudermire played his college ball at Minnesota, where he finished his career as the NCAA’s all-time leader in kickoff return yards. He started his Gophers career as a wide receiver before switching to cornerback.
He spent the past three years in the CFL, where he was listed as a defensive back. But the Vikings say he will play wide receiver here.
Roberson, meanwhile, is a former college quarterback at Indiana then Illinois State whom the Vikings list as a cornerback. He is a rookie.
After the signings, the Vikings’ active roster is full at 90 players. One spot was opened up when rookie cornerback Eric Rawls, who had agreed to terms after the draft, ended up not signing with the team.
For those wondering about punters, the Vikings are still expected to sign a punter this spring to compete with veteran Jeff Locke. My colleague Mark Craig had the scoop on that situation in Saturday’s newspaper.
