Minnesota Vikings Sign Alex Singleton To Practice Squad

Joe Nicholson-USA TODAY Sports

After promoting defensive lineman Zach Moore prior to Sunday's game against the Chicago Bears, the Minnesota Vikings had an open spot on their practice squad, and they filled that spot on Tuesday afternoon.

The Vikings signed linebacker Alex Singleton to the practice squad. Singleton was an undrafted free agent in 2015, and played his college ball at Montana State University.

Singleton was initially signed by the Seattle Seahawks, but was released in the Seahawks' final round of cuts on 5 September. He then found his way to the other team that participated in Super Bowl XLIX, the New England Patriots, who signed him to their practice squad. He was only with the Patriots for about a week before he was released again.

According to NESN:

Singleton ran a 4.65-second 40-yard dash at his pro day in March with a 7.13-second three-cone and a 4.25-second short shuttle. He also recorded a 31-inch vertical leap and 10-foot broad jump. He had nine tackles during the preseason for the Seahawks.

Welcome to Minnesota, Alex Singleton!
