The Minnesota Vikings signed veteran offensive tackle Brandon Keith and wide receiver Adam Thielen, the team announced Monday.

The Vikings also released receiver Nicholas Edwards, who was signed as an undrafted free-agent after this year’s draft.

Keith, 28, spent last season out of football because of injury to his right ankle. Before the injury, he was the Arizona Cardinal’s starting right tackle in 2011. He has played strictly at right tackle during his NFL career.

Thielen is an undrafted free agent out of Minnesota State-Mankato. It appears Thielen earned a job after attending the team’s rookie minicamp over the weekend as a tryout player.
