Vikings News: Minnesota reportedly bringing Garrett Bradbury back for 2023
One significant piece of Minnesota Vikings news on Tuesday featured the team reportedly agreeing to a new contract with free-agent center Garrett Bradbury.
Some believed that his time had come to an end with the Minnesota Vikings after the 2022 season, but it appears that center Garrett Bradbury isn’t leaving town just yet.
According to multiple reports, Bradbury, who was scheduled to officially become a free agent on Wednesday, agreed to a new multi-year with the Vikings on Tuesday.
Vikings News: Good idea for Minnesota to bring back Garrett Bradbury?
Despite being Minnesota’s first-round selection in the 2019 NFL Draft, Bradbury’s four seasons in the Twin Cities were quite underwhelming.
However, in his first year under Vikings head coach Kevin O’Connell in 2022, the veteran center saw his performance finally take some steps in the right direction.
Bradbury finished with the 11th-best offensive grade from PFF in 2022 among qualifying centers, easily the highest season-ending grade of his career.
He still has plenty to improve, especially when it comes to pass blocking, but Minnesota clearly felt he did enough last year to earn a new deal this offseason.
