Vikings sign David Parry

Defensive lineman David Parry visited with the Vikings last week and he’ll be spending more time in Minnesota in the weeks to come.

Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that Parry has signed with the team.

Parry made one tackle in one game for the Saints last season and then landed on injured reserve with an ankle issue in late September. He served a four-game suspension while he was on I.R. as a result of an arrest in Arizona last February that led to guilty pleas on charges of attempted unlawful means of transportation and disorderly conduct.

Parry was a fifth-round pick of the Colts in 2015 and had 78 tackles and four sacks while starting all 32 games he played for the Colts. He’ll try to earn a spot behind Sheldon Richardson and Linval Joseph on the interior of the defensive line with the Vikings.

  1. His arrest video is phenomenal. Google it

    He was OK in Indy but he’s nothing more than a rotational piece. He shouldn’t be a starter

  2. What the hell is “attempted unlawful means of transportation” — attempting to drive a lawn tractor or golf cart down the street? Riding a horse without insurance? I’m sure alcohol wasn’t involved.

  3. The vultures will be circling after the final cuts are made before the season. The Rich get Richer. This DL is stacked.

  4. A player on the Viking roster with an arrest record is hardly a first, did he make it to the stadium that day to suit up or sit in a jail cell waiting for the judge to come in on a Monday morning as happened to another Viking?

  5. Whatjusthapped, all teams have this issue from time to time. I would bet that the Vikings are in the lower half with this problem.
