The Vikings have been awarded linebacker Terrell Manning off waivers, tweets Brian McIntyre. Manning, cut yesterday by the Chargers, has one minimum-salary season remaining on his contract, which will be assumed by Minnesota.
Manning, who turns 24 tomorrow, was drafted by the Packers in the fifth round in 2012, but appeared in just five games for the club that season, exclusively on special teams. Green Bay cut Manning prior to the 2013 season, at which point he was claimed off waivers by the Chargers. However, the North Carolina State product only appeared in one game for San Diego.
