Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - The Minnesota Vikings signed veteran cornerback Benny Sapp to a one-year deal, according to the Minneapolis Star Tribune.

The deal is expected to pay Sapp close to $800,000.

Sapp, 27, spent the past four seasons as a backup with the Kansas City Chiefs, playing in 56 games and recording two interceptions and 2 1/2 sacks.

He is expected to bolster the Vikings' depth in the defensive backfield and also play on special teams.

"This was more of an opportunity move than a money move," Sapp's agent, Alonzo Shavers, told the newspaper. "We had more money on the table [elsewhere] but this was the best opportunity and best fit for him."

Yah, sure. While you are at it, I am in the market for a bridge, hopefully a high traffic one I can charge tolls on.
