Vikings Place DE Scott Crichton On Season-Ending I.R. & Promote DE Zach Moore

The Minnesota Vikings announced Saturday that they’ve placed DE Scott Crichton on season-ending injured reserve and promoted DE Zach Moore to their active roster.

Crichton, 24, was taken in the third round of last year’s NFL draft by the Vikings. He’s in the second year of his  four-year, $3,020,500 rookie contract that included a $656,324 signing bonus.

Crichton will make base salaries of $541,426 (2015), $633,750 (2016), and $769,000 (2017) over the remainder of the agreement.

In 2015, Crichton appeared in 13 games for the Vikings and recorded eight tackles.

Moore, 25, is a former sixth-round pick of the Patriots back in May of last year. He lasted just over a year in New England before he was at the start of the season and later signed to the Vikings’ practice squad.

In 2014, Moore appeared in eight games and recorded four tackles, a half sack, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
