What could have been, MBT. What could have been.

In addition to cutting Bethel-Thompson, the Vikings have added QB Chandler Harnish, WR Donte Foster and S Pierre Warren.

Harnish and Foster will be familiar to Viking fans but Warren not so much.

The 6-foot, 194-pound Warren played his college ball at Jacksonville State and was signed this year as a UDFA by the Saints. Obviously he did not stick with the Saints.

At least one draft-related site listed Warren as a “sleeper” at safety (via

"He’s tall, athletic and plays the ball extremely well in the air. Not only can he make plays on passes, but his three fumble recoveries shouldn’t be ignored. He’s just one of those players who is always near the ball and ready to make a play on it, always trying to force a turnover. He’s recorded a 4.53 40 time which is good for his size."

Scouting reports always have a funny way of making guys sound interesting, don’t they? But there’s a reason Warren was available.

It’s really not great news when you have to fill multiple practice squad spots in one day. It means you’ve been bringing a lot of guys up which means you’ve had a lot of injuries.
