EAGAN, Minn. – The Vikings have added a cornerback to the roster.
Minnesota signed Chandon Sullivan, who most recently played for the Packers, the team announced Friday.
A former Georgia State standout, Sullivan joined the Eagles in 2018 as an undrafted free agent. He signed with Green Bay for the 2019 campaign and that season notched his first NFL interception when he picked off Cowboys QB Dak Prescott. Over three seasons with the Packers, Sullivan started 20 of the 49 games he played and totaled 102 tackles, five interceptions and 16 passes defensed.

Sullivan overlapped in Green Bay with new Vikings outside linebacker Za'Darius Smith, whom Minnesota signed Tuesday. The former division rivals also have ties to Vikings Assistant Head Coach Mike Pettine, who served as the Packers defensive coordinator from 2018-20.
