The Vikings signed 10 players to their practice squad Sunday, and it features three former Vikings draft picks. Offensive lineman David Yankey, a fifth-round pick in 2014; linebacker Brandon Watts, a seventh-round pick in 2014; and defensive end B.J. DuBose, a sixth-round pick this year, will be on the team's practice squad.
The Vikings also signed former Gophers wide receiver Isaac Fruechte, offensive lineman Isame Faciane, safety Anthony Harris, linebacker Brian Peters, fullback Blake Renaud and running back Dominique Williams to their practice squad. All were with the team during training camp.
The 10th player signed to the practice squad is former Concordia (St. Paul) defensive lineman Zach Moore. A sixth-round pick by the Patriots in 2015, Moore was cut by New England on Saturday.
The Vikings were not rewarded with a player claim Sunday, while one of the players they cut was claimed by another team. Linebacker Michael Mauti, a seventh-round pick by the Vikings in 2013, was claimed by the New Orleans Saints.
Mauti is a Louisiana native and his father, Rich, played six seasons for the Saints as a wide receiver. Mauti spent two seasons with the Vikings, playing mostly on special teams.
