The Minnesota Vikings lost defensive end Ray Edwards but today they’re adding a player that could give them some help off the edge rushing the passer.
The Vikings are signing Stylez White to a one-year contract, bringing in a player who can provide a pass rush opposite Jared Allen.
White, who had 4 ½ sacks for the Tampa Bay Buccaneers last year, has 24 sacks over the past four seasons. He had a career-high eight sacks in 2007 for the Bucs. White hyas proven to be a durable performer, missing only one game in the last four years.
The Vikings likely view White as a good fit for first-year coach Leslie Frazier’s scheme. We’ll see how quickly he can adapt to the playbook and be on the field.
