As the Vikings continue to search for a running game and, basically, a passing game that gets more than four or five yards on every given play, they’ve added a former second-round pick who will be getting some chances on the practice field to earn some chances in games.
The Vikings have added running back Bishop Sankey. Drafted by the Titans in 2014 after playing college football at Washington, Sankey was dumped by Tennessee after two seasons. He spent time with the Patriots and Chiefs in 2016.
Sankey has 762 rushing yards, with an average gain per carry of 3.8 yards. He also has 272 receiving yards and four total touchdowns.
With Adrian Peterson injured, the Vikings have been trying to make their offense work with Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata. Ronnie Hillman spent some time on the roster before being released.
