Lamur had a tackle while playing six snaps on defense in Sunday's win at Carolina. Lamur has two tackles this season as he's getting almost all his playing time on special teams. He'll have a depth role at linebacker.
The Vikings signed Lamur on Wednesday, the team's official site reports. After his second NFL season was wiped away by a shoulder injury, Lamur served as a starting outside linebacker in Cincinnati in 2014, racking up 91 tackles (53 solo) and two interceptions in 14 games. However, he was relegated to reserve duty and special teams snaps last year, when he fell back to 40 tackles, one forced fumble, and one fumble recovery. Upon joining the Vikings, he could compete for another top role at OLB with Chad Greenway.
The Bengals re-signed restricted free-agent linebacker Emmanuel Lamur to a one-year tender offer Wednesday, the team announced. The team had previously placed a second-round tender on Lamur. In 14 games during the 2014 season, Lamur recorded 91 tackles and two interceptions.
The Bengals extended a second-round tender to restricted free agent linebacker Emmanuel Lamur, according to ESPN's Field Yates. He will make $2.356 million next year with the Bengals in 2015, unless a team offers a second-round pick. Lamur, 25, racked up 91 tackles and picked off two passes last season. He has posted 110 tackles in two seasons in the NFL.
