Roster Shuffles Again

The Vikings made a number of moves to bolster their depth at depleted positions, and more could follow.

In an attempt to help fill the team's depleted roster at key positions, the Vikings announced a pair of roster moves Tuesday.

The team signed linebacker Max Yates and CB Rhett Nelson to the practice squad. It is expected that when Onterrio Smith's appeal is heard and likely upheld, Yates will take his spot on the 53-man roster.

To make room for the signings, the Vikings released rookie CB Deandre Eiland and tight end J.P. Foschi from the practice squad. When and if Yates is promoted to the 53-man roster, one of them may be re-signed.
