Vikings Officially Sign LB Quentin Poling, Waive RB Tony Brooks-James



The Minnesota Vikings announced Saturday that they’ve officially signed LB Quentin Poling to a contract and waived RB Tony Brooks-James.

Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the Vikings are expected to sign LB Quentin Poling, pending COVID-19 testing and a physical.

Poling, 25, is a former seventh-round pick of the Dolphins back in 2018. He was waived coming out of the preseason last year and later signed to Miami’s practice squad.

The Dolphins brought Poling back on a futures contract only to waive him with an injury designation. After reverting to Miami’s injured reserve list, Poling was waived with a settlement. 

From there, Poling caught on with the Raiders last year. He returned to Las Vegas this past February but was waived following this year’s draft. 

During his four-year college career at Ohio, Poling recorded 373 tackles, 18 sacks, seven interceptions, two defensive touchdowns, five forced fumbles and two recoveries.
