Vikings Sign Bromell, Looking For More

The Vikings have now addressed their need at pass rusher, signing Miami's Lorenzo Bromell Tuesday to give them depth at the position.

Coming into free agency, the Vikings had some concerns on the defensive end position -- among several others.

Those concerns have been allayed, since the Vikings have now invested as much as $30 million over five years in the position. After signing Kenny Mixon last month, the Vikings added Mixon's backup Lorenzo Bromell Tuesday.

Bromell, a pass rush specialist with more than 20 sacks in four years despite just three starts, signed a five-year deal for $11 million, which includes a $2 million signing bonus. With incentives the contract could be worth as much as $15 million.

The Vikings now have Mixon, Bromell, Talance Sawyer and Lance Johnstone signed to play DE.

* The Vikings aren't done looking at free agents. The team is still talking to WR Jerome Pathon and TE Hunter Goodwin and hope to have deals completed this week.
* Three more free agents -- DT Grady Jackson (Oakland), OL Roman Oben (Cleveland) and K Doug Brien (last with Tampa Bay) -- are scheduled in this week.
* The Vikings hosted rookie DE/LB Kalimba Edwards, CB Quentin Jammer and OT Mike Williams Tuesday with more rookie visits scheduled later this week.
