Brock Vereen is returning to Minnesota. Sort of.
The 2014 fourth-round pick, who played college football at the University of Minnesota, has signed with the Vikings’ practice squad after being waived by the Bears.
Vereen appeared in 16 games last season with four starts. Unclaimed on waivers, he became a free agent.
As a member of the Minnesota practice squad, he can sign with any other team’s active roster. The fact that no one pounced on him via the waiver wire becomes yet another embarrassment for the Phil Emery regime in Chicago.
