EDEN PRAIRIE (AP) -- The Vikings traded a draft pick with the Cleveland Browns on Monday to bring defensive lineman Stalin Colinet back to Minnesota.
Vikings wide receiver Nate Jacquet was released to make room for Colinet, who played for Minnesota from 1997 to midseason 1999.
Last year, Colinet started all 16 games at defensive tackle for the Browns, recording a career-high 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks.
He was traded to Cleveland by Minnesota in 1999 in exchange for draft choices and nose tackle Jerry Ball. Colinet was the Vikings third-round pick, 78th overall, in the 1997 draft.
