EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) -Jimmy Kennedy has re-signed with Minnesota, providing the Vikings with insurance at defensive tackle.
Kennedy's one-year contract was announced Wednesday.
The Vikings first signed Kennedy after starters Kevin Williams and Pat Williams were initially suspended for four games in early December due to a controversial diuretic pill. A federal judge has put a hold on the Williams' punishment pending a hearing this summer.
Kennedy likely joins Letroy Guion and Fred Evans as the backups. Evans, a restricted free agent, has been offered a second-round tender to return.
Kennedy, a first-round draft pick by St. Louis in 2003 out of Penn State, has had a disappointing NFL career. He has five sacks in 64 games with the Rams, Jacksonville, Chicago and Minnesota.
