The Minnesota Vikings have once again re-shuffled the practice squad, adding some depth at offensive tackle with the status of both Riley Reiff and Mike Remmers looking uncertain for the short term.
On Tuesday, the Vikings signed offensive tackle Storm Norton to the practice squad. Norton played his college ball at the University of Toledo, and went undrafted in this year’s selection process.
The 6’8”, 310-pound Norton was signed by the Detroit Lions in the post-draft signing rush, and spent Training Camp with Detroit. He was cut and signed to the practice squad, and was actually promoted to the active roster for a couple of days before being released again and re-signed to the practice squad. The Lions released him again, and he was then signed by the Arizona Cardinals’ practice squad in early November. Norton stayed with the Cardinals for about three weeks, but was released on 30 November.
In order to make room for Norton on the practice squad, the Vikings released safety Jack Tocho. . .again. This is the third time that the Vikings have waived Tocho from the practice squad.
So, if you’re keeping track at home, the Vikings’ ten-man practice squad now looks like this:
- WR Rodney Adams
- DT Dylan Bradley
- TE Kyle Carter
- C Cornelius Edison
- WR Cayleb Jones
- OT Cedric Lang
- OT Storm Norton
- DE Ifeadi Odenigbo
- CB Horace Richardson
- LB Antwione Williams
