Joe Berger Coming Back To Minnesota Vikings

Hey, everybody. . .it's Joe Berger! - Brace Hemmelgarn-USA TODAY Sport

Lost in all the excitement of the Linval Joseph signing yesterday was the fact that the Minnesota Vikings brought back a key backup on the offensive line.

The team resigned Joe Berger to a one-year contract on Tuesday, making sure they kept a player that appears to be the primary backup at all three interior line positions. He started one game at each guard spot last season in place of Charlie Johnson and Brandon Fusco, and could even play center in a pinch if something were to happen to John Sullivan.

Terms of the deal were not released, other than the fact that it's a one-year deal. Berger had a one-year deal with the Vikings last season as well. With Charlie Johnson apparently moving on, it isn't known at this point if Berger is going to get a shot at the starting left guard spot, but even if he doesn't, it's nice to know that the team has a capable, versatile backup they can turn to.

Remember, folks. . .free agency isn't just all about the big, flashy signings. Teams need a lot of Joe Berger types on the roster as well.
