Vikes Sign Two Cornerbacks

Monday coach Mike Tice vowed to bring in a veteran cornerback. Tuesday, he did himself one better.

When the Vikings lost CB Ken Irvin for the season, it was expected that Mike Tice would look on the waiver wire for a veteran cornerback.

He did and, when the dust settled, the Vikings had two new cornerbacks on the roster.

The team announced Tuesday that it signed 10-year veteran Terrance Shaw, recently cut by the Panthers, and five-year vet Ralph Brown, recently released by the Redskins.

Each signed one-year deals -- Shaw for $1.4 million and Brown for $1 million.

While Rushen Jones will remain the nickel back for the time being, both are expected to see action when the Vikings meet the Eagles Monday.

WEDNESDAY NOTES
* To make room on the roster the Vikings placed Ken Irvin, who had surgery on his Achilles tendon Tuesday, on injured reserve and released safety Omare Lowe.
* If Lowe clears waivers the Vikings expect to sign him to the practice squad.
