Vikings sign Josh Thomas

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings added some depth at the cornerback position on Friday afternoon, signing journeyman Josh Thomas on the eve of training camp.

The move came three hours after the NFL suspended cornerback Jabari Price for the first two games of the season, but Thomas' addition might have as much or more to do with Josh Robinson's partially torn pectoral muscle. Price can practice during training camp and play during the preseason, and while it's possible Thomas will make the 53-man roster at the end of training camp, his addition could be to give the Vikings another body in camp while Robinson presumably starts on the physically unable to perform list.

Thomas, a fifth-round choice of the Dallas Cowboys in 2011, spent time with the Seattle Seahawks, New York Jets and Detroit Lions in 2014, after the Carolina Panthers cut him at the end of training camp. His best season came in 2013, when he started six games and made one interception for the Panthers.
