EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have signed veteran cornerback Benny Sapp to try to help plug the holes in a depleted secondary.

The eighth-year pro played for the Vikings in 2008 and 2009 before being traded to the Miami Dolphins. Sapp was cut after a Week 1 loss to New England this year and has been waiting for a call ever since.

The Vikings just need bodies in the secondary right now and chose Sapp because of his familiarity with their system. Antoine Winfield was placed on injured reserve on Wednesday with a broken clavicle and Chris Cook is not with the team while he deals with domestic battery charges.

Sapp says he is happy to be back and plans to be ready when the Vikings host Oakland on Sunday.
