The Minnesota Vikings are expected to sign offensive tackle David Quessenberry, who was recently released by the Buffalo Bills.
Adjustments continue to be made to the 53-man roster of the Minnesota Vikings as they attempt to put together the best possible players for the team in order to be competitive for the upcoming 2023 NFL season.
Recently, Mike Garafolo of NFL Network revealed on X (formerly Twitter) that the Vikings are expected to sign veteran offensive tackle David Quessenberry to their active roster as long as he is able to pass a physical.
Here is Garafolo's tweet with the announcement:
The Minnesota Vikings needed offensive line help
It's not shocking to see the Vikings go after an experienced offensive lineman. Initially, they only kept eight offensive linemen on the team's 53-man roster, so it was expected they would add at least one more before the season started.
However, it is interesting that David Quessenberry is a swing tackle with limited experience playing the guard position. Oli Udoh could be a more versatile backup than just a swing tackle if they want Quessenberry in that role, otherwise they may want to see what the new addition can do on the interior of the line.
Quessenberry started all 17 games for the Tennessee Titans in 2021 at right tackle after previously seeing action as their left tackle. He has started a total of 26 games of his 51 total games played in five NFL seasons.
At six-foot-five and 310 pounds, the 33-year-old lineman could help a Minnesota team looking to add some stability to their offensive line. The only question is what they have planned for him on their roster.
Congratulations to former Titans and Bills lineman David Quessenberry on joining the Minnesota Vikings and hopefully he can help the team create a more cohesive offensive line than they had in 2022.
