Feeling Wyms-ical? Vikings Sign DT Ellis Wyms

In an effort to add even more depth, the Vikings today signed 7-year veteran Ellis Wyms to a one-year contract worth around $1 million.

Wyms joins The Irresistable Force, The Immovable Object, and Fred Evans to comprise what might be the best group of DTs in the NFL.  In his 7 years, Wyms has a total of 16.5 sacks, and has the ability to play both inside and outside.

The Vikings also signed former Southern Cal linebacker Dallas Sartz to a contract today.  Sartz was a fifth-round pick by the Washington Redskins in last year's draft, but was cut prior to the regular season.  He and Rufus Alexander will likely fight it out for the last LB spot on the team behind E.J. Henderson, Ben Leber, Chad Greenway, Heath Farwell, and Derrick Pope.

Finally, Bryant McKinnie has pleaded not guilty to charges stemming from his clubberin' of a man outside of a Miami night club last month.  The trial is set for 11 April.  We'll have to see what develops there.
