The Buffalo Bills claimed defensive end Scott Crichton off waivers from the Minnesota Vikings on Monday.

Crichton was released by the Vikings on Friday after spending three years with the team. The Vikings waived Crichton with an injury designation at the conclusion of training camp last year and he spent the year on the team’s injured reserve list.

Crichton – a third round pick of the Vikings in 2014 – appeared in 21 games with Minnesota between the 2014 and 2015 seasons. He recorded just 10 total tackles in limited action.

He provides a veteran option at end for the Bills ahead of the draft. Crichton joins Shaq Lawson, Jerry Hughes and Ryan Davis as the only defensive ends currently on Buffalo’s roster.

    Maybe the Vikings should have used their 3rd round pick in 2014 on an O-lineman.

    He’s a non-entity.

    They upgraded with a former Packer but that statement is redundant.

    suprised you guys were able to uncover a photo of him in a vikings uniform. Lord knows nobody’s ever seen him on the field

    I think he must be only a camp body.
    Has almost no stats. Ten career tackles.

    He was last seen smiling as he headed out of town. The Bills make it to the playoffs even less than the Vikings but share the Superbowl record for losses at 4, not that the Vikings are getting back anytime soon.

    Crichton has been a disappointment. I always thought he was better suited to a 3-4 though…. Regardless, with Robison returning and the team giving Jones a chance to show what he can do when on a defense led by a competent coach, there was no more room for him. Good luck Scott

    Good luck. They’ll need it.

    This is a good pick up for the Bills. The Vikings staff raved about this guy going into his second season, but no one expected Danielle Hunter to emerge like he has. If not for Hunter, Crichton would probably be starting for the Vikings right now. Hopefully this gives him a chance to play.
