Vikings Release WR Kris Adams, Sign G Tyler Holmes

The Minnesota Vikings have made a roster move, though it's a decidedly inconsequential move, in the grand scheme of things. Aaron Wilson reported on Twitter that the Vikings have released wide receiver Kris Adams. Adams has yet to play a game in the National Football League, and originally signed with the Vikings in December of 2011.

Adams played college ball at the UTEP, and had more than 30 touchdowns with the school. He was among the NCAA leaders in regards to yards per catch, and was a highly sought-after undrafted free agent following the 2011 NFL Draft, but now he's failed to catch on with three teams.

He previously spent time with the Chicago Bears and the St. Louis Rams. According to the Pioneer Press, the Vikings released Adams so he has time to catch on with another team. He was set to receive a futures contract from the team. According to the piece, the Vikings also signed guard Tyler Holmes. He was a Conference USA honorable mention for the Golden Hurricanes in 2011.
