Vikings Sign DT David Parry

Posted May 16, 2018

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Wednesday announced the signing of defensive tackle David Parry.

Parry (6-foot-2, 317 pounds) originally entered the NFL as a fifth-round pick out of Stanford by the Indianapolis Colts. He started all 32 games in his first two seasons, totaling 4.0 sacks, but was waived by Indianapolis before the start of the 2017 season.

The New Orleans Saints signed Parry to their practice squad and then their active roster in September. He suited up in one game with the Saints before being placed on injured reserve in 2017.

Parry was born in Carrollton, Texas and raised in Daly City, California. He attended Linn-Mar High School in Marion, Iowa before playing collegiately at Stanford.

In 33 NFL games, Parry has 49 tackles and eight tackles for loss.

The Vikings released defensive tackle Dylan Bradley.
