Sherels re-signs with the Vikings

Sherels re-signs with the Vikings

Marcus Sherels is rejoining his home state team.

On Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings announced the team has re-signed the veteran return specialist. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

Sherels played nine seasons for the Vikings before signing with the New Orleans Saints in the off-season. Sherels, however, was nagged by a hamstring injury prior to the start of the season and wound up losing the punt returning job to rookie wide-out Deonte Harris. He reached an injury settlement without playing a regular season snap for the Saints.

As part of the moves made on Tuesday, the Vikings also announced the team would be bringing back veteran wide receiver Laquon Treadwell.

Sherels, a graduate of Rochester’s John Marshall High School, first joined the Vikings as an undrafted free agent out of the U of M in 2010. He holds the franchise record for most career punt return yardage and touchdowns.

Both Treadwell and Sherels are expected to lace up for the Vikings (2-1) this Sunday as they travel to Chicago for a divisional match-up against the Bears (2-1). Kickoff is scheduled for 3:25 p.m.
