Minnesota Vikings sign D-lineman Greg Hickman

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Vikings signed former Detroit Lions and CFL defensive lineman Greg Hickman on Friday morning, as they parted ways with rookie free-agent receiver Gavin Lutman.

Lutman, who had been sidelined with a hamstring injury for most of training camp, was placed on the waived/injured list. If no team claims him on waivers, he can go on injured reserve with the Vikings or negotiate an injury settlement so he can sign elsewhere.

Hickman, who played with Vikings offensive lineman Isame Faciane at Florida International, spent the 2014 season with the Winnipeg Blue Bombers after the Lions released him in their first round of roster cuts last year.
