The Minnesota Vikings were awarded linebacker Terrell Manning off waivers today from the San Diego Chargers.

Manning was claimed by the AFC West franchise last summer off waivers from the Green Bay Packers.

He appeared in one game last season with no statistics.

As a rookie with the Packers the previous season, Manning had three tackles in five games.

Manning is a former Packers fifth-round draft pick from North Carolina State.
