The Minnesota Vikings have signed safety George Iloka to a 1-year contract.
The move makes the Vikings’ defense even stronger, as they gave up the fewest points and yards in the NFL last season.
Mineesota has also acquired defensive end Sheldon Richardson, who was the 2013 NFL Defensive Rookie of the Year, and 1st-round pick Mike Hughes to the secondary.
The Vikings announced the signing via Twitter and Instagram:
The secondary just got stronger.
