EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) - The Minnesota Vikings have signed safety Brock Vereen to their practice squad.

Vereen joined the Vikings on Thursday, two days after he was cut by the Chicago Bears. The former University of Minnesota standout was drafted in the fourth round last year by the Bears, starting four games and grabbing one interception.

Vereen started training camp this season with the first team, but he fell down the depth chart as the Bears began the process of revamping their defense under new general manager Ryan Pace and new head coach John Fox.

Vereen has a college teammate on the practice squad with him in wide receiver Isaac Fruechte.

Vereen’s brother, Shane, is a running back for the New York Giants.
