Earlier on today, we passed along the news that the Minnesota Vikings had signed cornerback Isaiah Wharton, who went undrafted out of Rutgers but was impressive enough that the Vikings decided they needed to bring him in.
Despite having a roster that’s now at 90 players with Wharton’s signing, the Vikings have signed two more players from this weekend’s rookie tryout camp.
The first of the two players is Terrance Alexander, a cornerback from Louisiana State. Alexander played four seasons at Stanford before going to Baton Rouge as a graduate transfer. A native of Louisiana, Alexander played in all 13 games in his final season, starting five times. He collected 23 tackles and three passes defensed this past season.
The other player is Stacy Keely, a defensive end from the University of Alabama-Birmingham. Keely initially attended South Dakota State University, along with his twin brother. The 6’7”, 250-pound Keely played in nine games for UAB this past season, picking up eight tackles, including two tackles for loss, and a quarterback sack.
With the signings of Keely and Alexander, the Vikings now have 92 players, which means that there are a couple of corresponding roster moves coming. Those moves have not been announced yet, but when we get word of them we will bring them to you here.
