Defensive Lineman David Parry signs with Minnesota Vikings

Vikings looking to bolster defensive line depth


The Minnesota Vikings have been fairly quiet since the NFL Draft ended just a few weeks ago.  They have also discussed moving towards more of a rotation for the defensive line.


The team has made the signing of former Indianapolis Colts 5th Round pick David Parry official. They have waived defensive tackle Dylan Bradley in order to make room for the signing of Parry.

Parry, has played with both the Colts and Saints. This will be his third team in four years. In 2015, Parry posted his best season in the NFL. Playing and starting in all 16 games, he posted 34 total tackles and three sacks.

Parry does not come to the team without baggage, though. Ian Rapoport mentioned below that Parry served a 4-game suspension at the end of the 2017 season.

Parry brings some needed depth to the interior defensive line for the Vikings. The signing could also kick Jaleel Johnson back to the 3-tech position behind Sheldon Richardson.

Good news for the team if they can get some rotational production from Parry.
