EAGAN — The Minnesota Vikings have claimed safety Andrew Sendejo off waivers from Philadelphia, bringing back a longtime piece of their secondary.

The move was made Wednesday, the day after Sendejo was released by the Eagles, for whom he played in all nine games this season. He had an interception against the Vikings on Oct. 13.

Sendejo spent eight seasons with the Vikings, first cracking the starting lineup in 2013 and accumulating 59 starts. The hard-hitting, oft-penalized 32-year-old will provide depth behind starters Harrison Smith and Anthony Harris and extensive special teams experience.
