Minnesota Vikings Sign Two Tackles

Bringing them back.

The Minnesota Vikings made a couple of moves on Friday by re-signing offensive tackle Blake Brandel to a one-year contract and defensive tackle Khyiris Tonga. Brandel, a sixth-round pick in 2020, appeared in nine games in 2022 and was solid in three spot-starts while left tackle Christian Darrisaw was injured. He offers positional versatility, having taken reps at tackle, center, and as a "bonus tight end."

Meanwhile, Tonga, a seventh-round pick by the Chicago Bears in 2021, joined Minnesota in October and made 11 appearances, tallying 28 tackles as an interior defensive lineman. Photo Credit:  Peter van den Berg-USA TODAY Sports
