We didn't waste any time adding a third healthy running back, did we?

Adrian Peterson's loss is Ronnie Hillman's gain.

With Peterson on the shelf, the Minnesota Vikings signed Hillman on Wednesday, coach Mike Zimmer announced.


An 11-game starter with the Super Bowl champions last season, Hillman was released by the Denver Broncos at final cuts earlier this month.

The fifth-year veteran will add tailback depth behind Jerick McKinnon and Matt Asiata following Wednesday morning's news that knee surgery will sideline Peterson for the next several months.

Zimmer confirmed that McKinnon will assume RB1 duties going forward. Considering Asiata's experience edge in Norv Turner's offense, Hillman will likely be relegated to the No. 3 role after rushing for 863 yards on 207 carries (4.2 YPC) in 2015.

I guess we'll see how this one goes. Hillman is 25 years old with 1,845 career yards (4.1 avg) and 12 touchdowns. He played for Denver from 2012 to 2015.
