Nov 27, 2012 at 2:51p ET
Banyard, 24, spent time with the New Orleans Saints earlier this season but never played in a game and was waived in September. He was originally signed out of UTEP by Jacksonville but was released during the summer.
In his final season at UTEP, Banyard -- 5-foot-11 and 213 pounds -- ran for 832 yards and six touchdowns.
Todman had spent more than a year with the Vikings but hadn’t gotten any game action. In the team’s final preseason game this year, he had 114 yards rushing on 10 carries, including a 76-yard touchdown run. He had spent the entire regular season on the practice squad.
