A familiar face comes back

On Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings did a bit of reshuffling on their practice squad, bringing back a familiar face. Well, fairly familiar anyway.

According to Andrew Krammer of the Minneapolis Star-Tribune, the Vikings have signed cornerback Jalen Myrick and offensive tackle Adam Bisnowaty to their practice squad. In order to make room for them, they waived defensive tackle Curtis Cothran and waived defensive end Jonathan Wynn with an injury designation.

Myrick, the former Golden Gopher, was on the Vikings’ practice squad earlier this season, but was released just a week ago. He was drafted by the Jacksonville Jaguars in the seventh round of the 2017 NFL Draft, and spent his rookie season with the Jaguars.

Bisnowaty played his college ball at the University of Pittsburgh, where he was teammates with current Vikings’ right tackle Brian O’Neill. Bisnowaty was taken in the sixth round of the 2017 NFL Draft (#200 overall) by the New York Giants, and started the Giants’ regular season finale at right tackle after spending that year on the practice squad. He was cut this preseason, and spent time with both the Detroit Lions and Carolina Panthers this past offseason.

Cothran was an undrafted free agent from Penn State who spent Training Camp with the Vikings and was signed to the practice squad following final cuts. Wynn was also part of the team’s final cutdown, and was signed by the team back on 1 October.

Because Wynn was waived with an injury designation, if he goes unclaimed he will go onto the Vikings’ injured reserve list.

With these moves, the Vikings’ 10-man practice squad now looks like this:

  • WR Jeff Badet
  • WR Chad Beebe
  • OT Adam Bisnowaty
  • LB Reshard Cliett
  • OL Cornelius Edison
  • OL Colby Gossett
  • TE Cole Hikutini
  • CB Craig James
  • CB Jalen Myrick
  • OT Storm Norton
