Vikings sign tackle Brandon Keith

vikings logoAccording to ProFootballTalk.com, the Minnesota Vikings signed former Cardinals offensive tackle Brandon Keith today.

Keith was last seen as the starting right tackle in Arizona during the 2011 season, which ended early because of an injury to his right ankle. Keith, a seventh-round pick by Arizona in 2009, had other injury issues during his stint with the Cardinals and didn’t sign with anyone as a free agent last offseason. If he’s healthy, he’ll try to work his way toward another chance at a starting job somewhere in the league by serving as a backup to Phil Loadholt.
