Former Florida Atlantic University football defensive end Kevin Cyrille has agreed to terms on a rookie free agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings, following the completion of the NFL Draft on April 28.
The 6-foot-4-inch, 275-pound Cyrille finished his FAU career as the school’s all-time leader in quarterback hurries with 14. He also ranks among the top 10 in five other defensive categories despite only playing three years at the school after transferring from Western Michigan University.
Last season, Cyrille started 11 of FAU’s 12 games, and had 36 total tackles. He was second on the team in both tackles for loss (8.5) and sacks (4.5), while leading the team with nine QB hurries.
The Miami native is among 15 Vikings’ rookie free agents that will travel to Winter Park, Minnesota for the team’s rookie mini-camp beginning Friday, May 4.
