Re-signed Players – Day 2

Garrett Bradbury – C

Some wondered if Garrett Bradbury’s time with the Vikings had already come to an end, but those thoughts vanished on Tuesday when the reported deal between Minnesota and their veteran center was revealed.

Bradbury is coming off the best season of his NFL career in 2022, and the Vikings clearly felt his performance was worthy of a new contract.

Greg Joseph – K

Despite missing a total of 13 kicks in 2022, Minnesota decided to re-sign kicker Greg Joseph on Tuesday. Joseph’s return, however, shouldn’t prevent the Vikings from bringing in anyone else to compete for their kicking job this offseason.

Andrew DePaola – LS

After earning a First-Team All-Pro selection in 2022, bringing back Andrew DePaola was a priority for Minnesota this offseason. Luckily, long snappers are very inexpensive, so it didn’t take much for the Vikings to retain DePaola.

Nick Mullens – QB

Acquired in a trade before the start of the 2022 regular season, Nick Mullens spent will return for the 2023 campaign as the team’s No. 2 quarterback.

Kenny Willekes – EDGE

Hampered by injuries since he was selected in the seventh round of the 2020 NFL Draft, the Vikings are bringing Kenny Willekes back to see if he can help out their defense in 2023.
