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.
* 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.
