Vikings add veteran free agents Lacey, Jackson

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. – The Minnesota Vikings have signed a pair of veteran free agents, cornerback Jacob Lacey and defensive end Lawrence Jackson.

The deals were done on Monday. The Vikings also waived punter T.J. Conley.

Lacey and Jackson were with Detroit last year. Lacey has six career interceptions. Jackson has 19½ career sacks.

Conley was added to the roster in January but became expendable when the Vikings drafted Jeff Locke out of UCLA in the fifth round on Saturday. Locke could push veteran Chris Kluwe out of the job.
