Vikings sign QB Devlin to practice squad

The Vikings signed QB Pat Devlin to their practice squad and placed QB Chandler Harnish on the practice squad injured reserve. They also made a couple moves at tight end on their practice squad.

The Minnesota Vikings signed to their practice squad one of the three quarterbacks they worked out last Friday.

Former Delaware and Miami Dolphins QB Pat Devlin was signed to the practice squad on Monday.

Devlin spent three years (2011-13) with the Miami Dolphins but didn’t play in a game.

He also worked out for the New York Jets, New York Giants and Green Bay Packers since the Dolphins released him with an injury settlement (hamstring) on Aug. 19.

Devlin transferred from Penn State to Delaware after his sophomore season in 2008. In his first season with the Blue Hens, Devlin completed 64 percent of his attempts for 2,664 yards, 16 touchdowns and nine interceptions and led Delaware to a 6-5 record. As a senior, Devlin led Delaware to a 12-3 record and an appearance in the Football Championship Subdivision title game, where the Blue Hens fell to Eastern Washington. For the season, he completed 66.07 percent of his attempts for 3,032 yards, 22 touchdowns and just three interceptions.

The Devlin signing was one in a series of roster moves the Vikings made on Monday.

They also placed QB Chandler Harnish on the practice squad injured reserve after he suffered a Lisfranc injury last week in practice when an offensive lineman stepped on his foot.

They also released TE Ryan Otten from the practice squad and signed TE Rashaun Allen to take his place.

Allen played one game with the Seattle Seahawks this year and spent time on their practice squad, too, after signing with them as an undrafted rookie in May.
