The Minnesota Vikings claimed cornerback Julian Posey off waivers, the team announced Monday.

Posey appeared in five games for the Cleveland Browns in 2013 and recorded six tackles and one sack. After going through training camp with the Miami Dolphins in 2013, Posey was signed by the Browns to their practice squad on Sept. 2, 2013.

In 2012, Posey appeared in two games for the Dolphins. Originally signed by the New York Jets as an undrafted free agent in 2011, he spent 15 weeks of the 2011 season on the Jets' practice squad.

The Vikings also waived cornerback Kip Edwards, a second-year player out of Missouri.
