The Minnesota Vikings have finally filled the last of their available 90 roster spots, signing defensive tackle Chrishon Rose.
Rose, an undrafted rookie, was a four-year letter winner at East Carolina, where he earned honorable mention All-Conference USA for the 2013 season when he recorded 31 tackles and 2½ sacks. Last year, he played in 13 games for the Pirates, totaling 41 tackles, including 14 solo.
The native of Alexandria, Va., earned a bachelor’s degree in business management and is also a musician.
The Vikings have had an open roster spot since May 11, when they released rookie OL Jesse Somsel and first-year WR Kain Colter and signed free agent rookie WR Isaac Fruechte.
The signing of Rose brings them to their offseason roster maximum of 90 players.
