Safety Tyrell Johnson has signed a contract with the Miami Dolphins as a potential replacement for departed starter Yeremiah Bell.
Johnson, a second-round draft pick by Minnesota in 2008, started 15 games for the Vikings in 2009 but a total of only five over the past two years. He had surgery in November to repair a torn right hamstring tendon and says he's 85-percent recovered.
Last month, the Dolphins released Yeremiah Bell, a starter at safety since 2006. They haven't ruled out re-signing him.
The Dolphins also announced Thursday that they have re-signed reserve linebacker Austin Spitler.

In 2008, the Minnesota Vikings traded up in the second round to take Tyrell Johnson. Now, after four lackluster seasons, he is moving on.
The Miami Dolphins announced Thursday that the team has signed the safety and intends to use him as a starter.
The Vikings traded a fourth-round pick to move up and select Johnson with the 43rd choice in 2008.
Johnson started all 15 games he...
The Miami Dolphins made an under-the-radar signing on Thursday, agreeing to terms with former Vikings safety, Tyrell Johnson. Johnson was a 2nd round pick of the Vikings in 2008 and adds depth to the safety position.

Just when their fans thought the Minnesota Vikings were on the path to a drama-free future, a startling report surfaced in the New York Post on Wednesday morning that team owner Zygi Wilf is pushing hard to bring future Hall of Fame football coach Bill Parcells to Minnesota to "run the show."
What does that mean?
Well, according to The Post, a source said Parcells was...
A report early Wednesday in the NY Post stated that the Minnesota Vikings were pursuing Bill Parcells to be the head coach of their team, even though Leslie Frazier is still in that capacity. Bob Hagan, the director or public relations for the Vikings issued a statement that denied such interest.
“There is no truth to the media reports.”
The initial report from the Post could...
There are rarely dull days when it comes to the Minnesota Vikings, but waking up to a report that team owners Zygi and Mark Wilf had approached Bill Parcells to coach and "run the show" was certainly unexpected.
The New York Post delivered the news Wednesday morning that a source said Parcells claimed at a recent dinner with New Orleans Saints coach Sean Payton that he...
An unnamed source for the New York Post on Wednesday is saying that Minnesota Viking owner, Ziggy Wilf, has reached out to Bill Parcells in an attempt to not only come in and run the team, but coach it as well. Parcells had a recent dinner date with now suspended New Orlean Saints' coach, Sean Payton. At that dinner he informed Sean and the Saints that Wilf was very interested...
If Bill Parcells returned to the NFL to coach the New Orleans Saints, it probably wouldn't shock many people. Parcells getting hired by the Minnesota Vikings, on the other hand -- well, it still probably wouldn't surprise anyone. Vikings owner Zygi Wilf told the Hall of Fame candidate to "name his price" to take over the team's football operations and coaching...
I don't have much to say on the politics surrounding the stadium besides I think all young people are stupid anyway, so I don't see the point in taking more of my hard earned money and wasting it on morons who refuse to do their damn geometry homework anyway, so why not just put it towards a stadium? HEY HIPSTER, GET OFF MY LAWN!As is, I instead like to complain like a bitter...
The Minnesota Vikings collapsed so quickly in 2011 that our Naughty Nurse had to rush in with a crash cart. We should have taught her that the paddles go over the heart, not the ears. In either case, the Vikings have a long road to recovery after a 3-13 season.....
Just last week, former Washington Redskins quarterback Donovan McNabb made a guest appearance on ESPN’s First Take and stated that he believes that quarterback Robert Griffin III will be a bad fit in Washington, if they end up drafting him.
McNabb went on to criticize how Redskins head coach Mike Shanahan runs the team and how his son Kyle runs the offense.
Sally Jenkins of the...
