Sorry.Ken Blaze-USA TODAY SportsSince the Alliance of American Football folded, the Minnesota Vikings have been bringing in all sorts of players from the league, and on Monday night they added another one.NFL Draft Diamonds is reporting that the Vikings are signing defensive Karter Schult to a deal.Schult played for the Salt Lake Stallions. . .our adopted team. . .in the AAF Ameer Abdullah Jersey , and wound up third in the league with seven sacks in the Stallions’ eight games.Schult went undrafted out of the University of Northern Iowa in 2017, and spent the 2017 preseason with the Cleveland Browns. The Vikings actually invited him in for a tryout during the 2018 offseason, but ultimately decided not to sign him.As you can probably gather from his sack numbers Danielle Hunter Jersey , Schult was one of the better defensive linemen in the AAF. The folks from Pro Football Focus had him graded as the seventh-best edge defender in the league with an overall grade of 81.3.Schult is now the third player from the AAF that has signed with Minnesota, joining safety Derron Smith and cornerback Duke Thomas, both of whom played for the San Antonio Commanders.There’s really no harm in the Vikings taking a flier on Schult. He’s shown the ability to get to the passer Linval Joseph Jersey , and that’s something you can’t have enough of in this league. Will be be able to crack the Vikings’ 53-man roster? Well, we’re all going to find out.UPDATE: According to Ian Rapoport, it’s been a pretty big week for Schult. Cornerback Marcus Sherels‘ long run with the Vikings has reportedly come to an end.Chris Tomasson of the reports that Sherels has agreed to a one-year deal with the Saints. Per the report Brett Jones Jersey , the Vikings hoped to bring Sherels back for a 10th season with the team. Sherels joins center Nick Easton and running back Latavius Murray as players to leave the Vikings for the Saints this offseason.Sherels signed with the Vikings after going undrafted in 2010 and has spent most of the last eight years as the team’s primary punt returner. He’s the franchise’s leader in punt return touchdowns with five for his career and that number ties him with Percy Harvin and Cordarrelle Patterson for the most special teams touchdowns in Vikings history.Sherels only played 49 defensive snaps for Minnesota over the last two seasons, so it’s a good bet that those punt return skills will be the biggest part of his job in New Orleans as well.
