The Minnesota Vikings announced on Wednesday that they have signed linebacker Mike Needham, who was released by the Arizona Cardinals after their rookie minicamp.
Needham takes the roster spot of defensive end Hercules Mata’afa, who sustained a torn ACL in minicamp and was waived with an injury designation. An undrafted rookie from Washington State, he will be placed in injured reserve if he goes unclaimed.
The Cardinals signed Needham after he was undrafted out of Southern Utah. He was selected first-team All-Big Sky Conference three times, and in his senior year made 100 tackles, including seven for losses.
