The Vikings have signed another player on the defensive line.
This time, it is former New Orleans Saints defensive tackle Tom Johnson.
Minnesota and Johnson have agreed to terms on a one year deal worth $845k. He has $100k in bonuses and can earn up $600k in incentives.
Johnson is 6’3″ tall and weighs in at 288 pounds at age 29. Here are his full NFL statistics over three seasons with the Saints:
40 games played
- zero starts
- 35 solo tackles
- 20 assisted tackles
- 5 sacks
- 1 forced fumble
Johnson will add more depth and stability to the Vikings defensive line at a very small cost. This is a good, low risk-high reward signing for Minnesota. He will fly in for a physical tomorrow and, if passed, will sign the deal.
