The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to bring back their veteran longsnapper Cullen Loeffler on a one year deal.
Although the details of financial aspects of Loeffler’s deal are currently unknown, the news was spread by ESPN’s Ben Goessling on Twitter. Here is the tweet announcing the deal:

This will keep the Vikings trio of special teams players together for the 2015 NFL season. Cullen Loeffler will join kicker Blair Walsh and punter Jeff Locke as the specialists. Loeffler turned 34 this year in January and this will mark his 12th season with Minnesota after he came to the team as an undrafted free agent in 2004. Loeffler has never played for any team other than the Vikings in his NFL career.
While this isn’t the kind of big signing that Vikings fans were hoping for, keeping the important role players on the team can be just as valuable as a “splash” signing can be. Cullen Loeffler provides stability at an often overlooked position for the Minnesota Vikings for the 2015 season and should be seen as a good signing.
