The Vikings have added a defender with safety and linebacker experience to their 90-player roster.
Minnesota has signed Brian Peters, who spent the last two seasons with the Saskatchewan Roughriders of the Canadian Football League.
The 27-year-old Peters played linebacker for Saskatchewan last season, recording 78 tackles, three sacks and two interceptions. However, Peters (6-3, 218) was a safety at Northwestern from 2007-2011, recording 11 interceptions.
Before spending two seasons in Saskatchewan (2013-2014), Peters played one season with the Arena Football League’s Iowa Barnstormers (2012).
