Vikings finally sign Lorenzo Booker

Nearly two weeks ago, the Vikings gave UFL running back Lorenzo Booker a tryout.  Because of the UFL’s $150,000 transfer fee, the Vikings opted not to sign him.

Now that the transfer fee has been dropped to $25,000, Booker is a Viking.

The UFL has announced the transaction via a news release.

Booker is the second UFL player to be signed to an active roster since the reduction of the transfer fee.  Last week, the Patriots signed defensive end Eric Moore.

Booker, who previously played for the Eagles and Dolphins, boycotted the regular-season finale involving his UFL team, the Hartford Colonials.
