Former Nebraska QB Tommy Armstrong has found an NFL home … again.
The Cornhuskers’ all-time leading passer has signed with the Minnesota Vikings, where he will play safety, the team announced on Tuesday.

Armstrong entered the draft hoping to catch on as a running back or wide receiver, but the Vikings suggested he try safety. He said earlier this month that when it comes to his professional position, he will, “keep my mind open for a change.”
In four years at Nebraska, Armstrong sets school records for completions (625), passing yards (8,871), passing touchdowns (67) and more, though he sometimes struggled with his accuracy.
