MANKATO, Minn. -- The Minnesota Vikings added some experienced offensive line depth on Sunday, signing eight-year NFL veteran Scott Kooistra to a free-agent contract.
Kooistra, 30, has played in 84 career games with Cincinnati (2003 to '09) and Baltimore (2010), starting one.
The Vikings also announced the signings of their entire draft class and four other free agents -- halfback Tristan Davis (Auburn), linebacker Jonathon Gilmore (Western Oregon), receiver Ryan Lincoln (Texas A&M-Kingsville), end Cedric McKinley (Minnesota) and linebackers Mark Washington (Texas State) -- and confirming seven previously reported veteran signings.
That puts the roster at 89 players, one shy of the camp limit. Practice begins at 3 p.m. Monday.
