MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO/AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with cornerback Captain Munnerlyn on a three-year deal, the team announced early Thursday evening.
Locking up Munnerlyn helped the Vikings address another big need on a defense that struggled last season. Munnerlyn spent the first five seasons of his career in Carolina.
Last season, the 25-year-old had a career-high 74 tackles and 3½ sacks. He also returned both of his interceptions for touchdowns and has five defensive touchdowns in his career.
