MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) – The Minnesota Vikings made a few roster moves on Thursday as the NFL is in the height of free agency and players are moving all around.

The most notable move was the release of Madieu Williams, a safety out of Maryland. Williams was the Vikings starting safety and has been with the team since 2008. He started in 16 games in 2009 and got 13 starts last season.

The Vikings also released defensive tackle Jimmy Kennedy, a move that was announced Wednesday. Wide receiver Freddy Brown has also been released.

Two undrafted free agents were signed on Thursday. The Vikings acquired Ed Barham, a tight end out of North Carolina, and Alexander Robinson, a running back out of Iowa State. If Alexander’s name sounds familiar, he was a prep star for DeLaSalle before going to Iowa State.
