Report: Vikings to sign DT Evans

In need of depth at defensive tackle, the Vikings apparently are willing to take a chance on a player with some off-the-field baggage. reported that defensive tackle Fred Evans, who was released by the Miami Dolphins in June following two offseason arrests, will sign a free-agent contract with the Vikings.

Evans, the Dolphins' seventh-round draft choice last season, was released in June after being arrested by Miami police, who had to use a Taser to subdue him, and already was on probation for a marijuana possession charge in Texas.

Evans told that he expects a favorable legal outcome on his pending charges in Florida but that an NFL suspension is likely.

Saturday was a day off for the Vikings, who return to practice this afternoon.
