Vikings add veteran free agents Lacey, Jackson
The deals were done on Monday. The Vikings also waived punter T.J. Conley.
Lacey and Jackson were with Detroit last year. Lacey, who played three prior seasons for Indianapolis after going undrafted out of Oklahoma State, has six career interceptions. Jackson was a first-round pick by Seattle in 2008 out of USC who played two years for the Seahawks before leaving for the Lions in 2010. He has 19 1/2 career sacks.
Conley was added to the roster in January but became expendable when the Vikings drafted Jeff Locke out of UCLA in the fifth round on Saturday. Locke could push veteran Chris Kluwe out of the job.
Jets sign G Peterman, add 15 undrafted FAs
The moves Monday came after the Jets also announced they had waived quarterback Tim Tebow.
Peterman, who adds depth to the Jets' revamped offensive line, was a third-round draft pick by Dallas in 2004 and played the last seven seasons with Detroit. He has appeared in 90 career games with 86 starts.
The Jets also agreed to terms with wide receivers Zach Rogers, Ryan Spadola, K.J. Stroud and Antavious Wilson; tight ends Chris Pantale and Mike Shanahan; offensive linemen Dalton Freeman, Trey Gilleo and Mark Popek; defensive linemen Roosevelt Holliday, Jake McDonough and Spencer Nealy; linebacker Troy Davis; and defensive backs Mike Edwards and Rontez Miles.
