The Minnesota Vikings have signed defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson.

The deal was done before their minicamp began and brings back an proven interior pass rusher in the latest part of their offseason makeover.

Defensive end Danielle Hunter also made his first appearance on the practice field. He skipped the previous spring sessions.

Hunter agreed to rework the terms of the contract he signed three years ago. He didn't play last season due to a neck injury.
