The Minnesota Vikings apparently have ventured north of the border for cornerback help, reportedly signing former Edmonton Eskimos defensive back Rod Williams.

Williams, 5 feet 11 and 180 pounds, had 11 interceptions in three seasons for the Eskimos.

The Vikings have signed CFL players in three of the past four offseasons.

Oh...that border! When I read the title of the thread I was racking my brain trying to think of any mexicans who play CB at a high level. I guess it's too early in the morning. Laughing

Rod Williams played four seasons at cornerback at Alcorn State and had his best year as a junior, recording 66 tackles, 12 pass breakups and one interception. He started as a member of the Edmonton Eskimos practice roster before signing to the active roster in June 2010. He played in 12 games, making six stars, before ending the season back on the practice roster.

a CFL practice squad player... here we had an award winning CFL player in Elimimian and he couldn't make our roster.
