Vikings Free Agency 2012: Fullback Jerome Felton Agrees To Deal With Minnesota

The Minnesota Vikings were looking for some fullback help and, thus, had free agent Jerome Felton in town on Tuesday. Felton must have liked what he saw because he has reportedly already agreed to a deal on the same day:

Six months after trying to claim Jerome Felton off waivers but losing out to the Carolina Panthers, the Minesota Vikings finally landed the fullback on Tuesday.

The Vikings announced they had signed the 25-year-old Felton, who was a free agent.

Specifics of the deal have not yet been disclosed.

The Detroit Lions selected Felton in the fifth round of the 2008 draft out of Furman and he appeared in 42 games over three seasons before being waived last summer when the team opted to go with more tightends. Felton was picked up off waivers by the Panthers, but they cut him on November 25. He spent the rest of the season with the Indianapolis Colts.
