Vikings Sign Henry Jones

In light of the Robert Griffith injury, Dennis Green wasted little time in getting a replacement, as the Vikings signed former Buffalo safety Henry Jones Tuesday.

With Robert Griffith expected to be shelved for the next two months, the Vikings wasted little time in trying to address the vacancy left by his broken leg.

As reported yesterday in VU, the Vikings made it official Tuesday, signing safety Henry Jones, a 10-year veteran who was released by the Bills in early September.

The Vikings and Jones agreed to a one-year contract. Terms were not disclosed, but are thought to be near the veteran minimum of $477,000.

While Jones will eventually be expected to start, Don Morgan will start Sunday vs. Tampa Bay, as Jones tries to work his way back into game shape.

* To make room on the 53-man roster, the Vikings cut Matt Cercone after signing Jones.
