The Vikings remained active in the free agent market Thursday, signing former Viking Tyrone Carter. Terms of the deal were not immediately available, but it was expected to be for a little more than veteran minimum.
Carter, an undersized safety drafted by the Vikings out of the University of Minnesota, left the team last year and signed with the Jets -- and current Vikes defensive coordinator Ted Cottrell.
The signing now gives the Vikes three players in the secondary who have played under Cottrell -- Carter and CBs Antoine Winfield and Ken Irvin.
* Don't expect to see a reunion with another former Viking -- OT Todd Steussie, who was released by the Panthers Thursday. VU has been told the Vikings won't pursue Steussie, who some with the team think may be destined to end up with Panthers division rival Bucs.
