Vikings host 6 players, sign CB Parry Nickerson to practice squad

After signing CB Duke Shelley to the active roster on Saturday and the Raiders signing tight end Jacob Hollister before the game against the Buffalo Bills, there were two open spots on the practice squad.

The Vikings filled one of those with veteran tight end James O’Shaughnessy and signed CB Parry Nickerson to the practice squad on Tuesday. The Vikings also hosted five others on Tuesday before signing Nickerson.

We wrote about the Vikings hosting tight end Alize Mack earlier on Tuesday and the Vikings also hosted an old friend in Julian Taylor who was a part of the Vikings’ cuts during training camp.

They also looked at edge rusher Curtis Weaver, defensive tackle Sheldon Day and cornerback Darren Evans.

With all the players that the Vikings brought in for a tryout, it is curious that they chose not to bring in any kickers despite Greg Joseph struggling.
