(Eagan, MN) — The Minnesota Vikings are bringing in some more defensive help. The team announced yesterday that it signed linebacker Jordan Hicks to a two-year deal reportedly worth 12-million dollars. Hicks was released by Arizona last week, so he was able to sign with any team before the beginning of the new league year this afternoon. The 29-year-old gives Minnesota a second inside linebacker to pair with Eric Hendricks in the Vikings new three-four base defense. Hicks started all 17 games for the Cardinals last year, making 116 tackles and picking up four sacks.
