The Vikings have made another shuffle on the practice squad. This one actually makes sense considering the depth in the secondary. Minnesota has waived offensive tackle Jamaal Johnson-Webb and signed cornerback Kip Edwards.
Edwards was an undrafted rookie who has played for both the Cleveland Browns and the Buffalo Bills. He possesses the size and speed that is somewhat ideal for a cornerback in the NFL. At 6’1″ and 200 pounds, he is an intimidating defender. During his NCAA play at Missouri, he became known for his physical play that intimidated the wide receivers on opposing teams.
This is a great opportunity for Edwards. Minnesota is a team where a young, inexperienced cornerback could be able to make an impression on the coaching staff and be elevated to the regular roster because of a lack of depth.
