The Vikings re-signed free agent quarterback R.J. Archer (a.k.a Rush James Archer II) to the practice squad yesterday. The team originally signed Archer to a three-year contract in April but released him. Archer stands 6-2, 220 lbs. out of William & Mary college.
Archer switched to wide receiver during his 2006 and 2007 seasons at William & Mary, collecting 69 receptions during that span. In 2008, he switched back to quarterback and became the full-time starter during the 2009 season, throwing 16 touchdowns and 9 interceptions.
Archer’s agent, Chris Cabott, has flooded YouTube with highlight videos of his client.
