Vikings sign Marcus Sherels
Fri, Jan 3rd 10:56pm EST
The good news is that Sherels is familiar with the system. The bad news is that he is a career backup that the Vikings parted ways with earlier this season. Sherels, who spent the preseason with the Saints before spending a few games with the Vikings and Dolphins this season, is still in the NFL due to his return skills, and not for his prowess in coverage. Hopefully the Vikings will not need him to play defensive snaps.
