In March, the Vikings signed Felton to a one-year, $700,000 contract. A fifth-round pick by Detroit in 2008, Felton is looking to find a consistent role in the NFL after short stints with Carolina and Indianapolis in 2011. The Lions released him in August.
Felton is the third Vikings player in the past 10 months to be arrested for DWI. Quarterback Rhett Bomar was arrested in August, followed by safety Tyrell Johnson in September. Both are no longer with the team.
