The Vikings used the waiver wire to bolster their secondary on Thursday.

Field Yates of ESPN reports that the team claimed cornerback John Reid off of waivers. The Falcons cut Reid on Wednesday.

Reid signed to the Falcons practice squad late last season after being let go by the Titans. He had five tackles in three games with Houston.

Reid also played 11 games for the Seahawks in 2021 and 13 games for the Texans in 2020. He had 25 tackles and three passes defensed in those appearances.

The Vikings have also added Byron Murphy, Joejuan Williams, third-round pick Mekhi Blackmon, and fourth-round pick Jay Ward to their cornerback group this offseason.

  1. I think this must be the the 68th CB the Vikings has tried in vain efforts to get someone who can stay on the field. Maybe they should draft for longevity instead of all the “metric” induced bells and whistles.
