The Minnesota Vikings released four vested veterans in their final cutdowns on Aug. 31. Nearly a month later, one of them is back in the NFL.
Safety Eric Frampton, who was one of the Vikings' best special teams players the past five seasons, agreed to terms on Tuesday with the Dallas Cowboys. His agents, Ryan Morgan and Wynn Silberman, announced the news on Twitter.
Frampton, 28, got a $1 million bonus to re-sign a three-year deal with the Vikings after the NFL lockout ended in July 2011. But general manager Rick Spielman decided to keep younger safeties Andrew Sendejo and Robert Blanton on the 53-man roster instead.
In other news, receiver Tori Gurley, who was waived off the Vikings' practice squad last week, tweeted that he has signed with the Oakland Raiders.
