Jerome Felton arrested for DWI

The Vikings legal issues continue as Jerome Felton was arrested early this morning on a second-degree DWI charge. Felton was arrested and refused to submit a chemical test making it a second-degree charge which is a gross misdemeanor. Felton was released Saturday after posting $12,000 bail. Since the beginning of 2011, at least six Vikings players have been arrested including three on DWI charges even though the NFL provides free car service to prevent these issues. The Vikings are beginning to look a lot like the Bengals of the past few years and starting to get a bad reputation because of it.

Vikings sign fullback Jerome Felton

 Minnesota continued to make small ripples in the free agency pool today (March 20th), by agreeing to terms with free-agent fullback Jerome Felton. The Vikings tried to claim Felton last year on waivers but the claim was instead awarded to Carolina. 7 months later, Minnesota gets Felton and adds him to a crowded backfield including RBs Adrian Peterson and Toby Gerhart, FB Ryan D’Imperio and newly acquired RB/FB hybrid Lex Hillard. Felton has spent time with Detroit, Carolina and Indianapolis during the 25 year-old’s short 4 year career. Terms of the deal are not yet known.
