The Minnesota Vikings added depth to their practice squad on Tuesday, as the team signed third-year offensive lineman Troy Kropog according to the Pioneer Press.

The 26-year-old Kropog was selected in the fourth-round in 2009 by the Tennessee Titans out of Tulane University, and appeared in five games over the last three years before being released after just one game in 2012. Although he was signed by the Jaguars and appeared to have found a home on Sept. 12, Kropog was released a mere three days later by Jacksonville.

At 6'6 and 315 pounds, Kropog clearly has the size to make a big impact if he is called upon for more than practice squad duties. To make room on the roster for Kropog, the Vikings cut ties with 24-year-old receiver Tori Gurley from South Carolina. Gurley originally signed with the Vikings on Sept. 1, one day after being released by Green Bay.
