The roster churning continues for the Minnesota Vikings, as they brought back a player they recently waived goodbye to on Saturday.

The team has brought back running back Tony Brooks-James, and have waived offensive lineman Brady Aiello to make room on the roster for him.

Brooks-James was waived by the Vikings when the team signed linebacker Quentin Poling. He spent part of last season on the Vikings’ practice squad but did not get promoted to the active roster.

Aiello was part of the Vikings’ undrafted free agent haul this past April, and actually received the fourth-largest signing bonus of any of their UDFAs after a successful career at Oregon.

Also, a brief correction from yesterday’s story about the Vikings claiming former Miami Dolphins safety Steven Parker. The team did not have to make a roster move immediately, as they have an exemption for Parker while he undergoes the mandated COVID-19 testing and other things. When he is cleared, however, the Vikings will have to make a move to keep the roster at 80.
