Vikings sign CB Melvin White to a reserve/future contract

By Andrew Krammer

The Vikings added a cornerback Friday for the 2016 season.

Melvin White was signed to a reserve/future contract, joining seven others to ink similar deals this week. White (6-1, 215) went undrafted out of Louisiana-Lafayette in 2013, and made 18 starts for the Carolina Panthers in 2013 and 2014, including one playoff game. He posted 11 pass deflections and three interceptions in those starts. White was released by the Panthers on an injury settlement in September, and spent most of the 2015 season on the St. Louis Rams’ practice squad.

The Vikings also signed seven of their practice-squad players to similar deals this week. They currently have five cornerbacks under contract for 2016, including Xavier Rhodes, Captain Munnerlyn, Trae Waynes, Jabari Price and White. Three corners from last season, Terence Newman, Josh Robinson and Marcus Sherels, are pending free agents.
