Vikings Sign Tony Carter


Former Patriots CB Tony Carter has been signed to a one-year deal by the Vikings, tweets future radio superstar Judd Zulgad (who for the time being remains on the beat with the Star-Trib).

The Vikings were in need of another cornerback after the departure of Marcell Gipson who left camp due to the death of his grandmother and elected not to return. Carter will compete with several other nondescript defensive back candidates – Devon Torrence, Marcus Sherels, Brandon Burton – for a spot on the depth chart behind the top four of Winfield, Griffin, Allen and Cook.

In two seasons with Denver and New England Carter has played in four games, amassing four tackles, 1 recovered fumble and 1 bat-down.
