Thigpen to KC

Quarterback Tyler Thigpen, whom the Vikings were hoping to sneak through waivers, has been awarded to the Kansas City Chiefs, according to his agent, Joel Turner.

In addition to the Chiefs, Turner said the Carolina Panthers expressed an interest in signing Thigpen to their practice squad, which is what the Vikings were hoping to do after releasing him Saturday.

Thigpen, a seventh-round draft choice of the Vikings, will be a member of Kansas City's active roster.

"You really can't fault Minnesota for what they did, bringing in Kelly Holcomb last week," Turner said. "We're very appreciative of the opportunity they gave Tyler. You just don't know in this business."

Also, cornerback Dovonte Edwards was claimed on waivers by the New York Giants.
