EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have signed rookie free agents Winona State guard Nick Urban and Washington center Juan Garcia.

The roster moves on Tuesday come two days after the Vikings hosted a rookie minicamp that included most of the team's draft picks and several rookie free agents they signed immediately following the draft.

Both Urban and Garcia were brought to the camp without contracts and given the opportunity to impress coaches and earn their way on to the team.

Urban played tackle at Division-II Winona State in southern Minnesota. But the 6-foot-4, 310-pounder projects as a guard in the NFL.

Garcia overcame foot and ankle injuries to start every game for the Huskies over his final three seasons at Washington.
