Minnesota Vikings Sign Tight End Brian Leonhardt

Steve Flynn-USA TODAY Sports

It appears that the Minnesota Vikings might not be done signing players yet after all.

Ben Goessling of ESPN is reporting that the team has signed tight end Brian Leonhardt to a one-year, $600,000 deal.

Leonhardt played his high school ball for the mighty Panthers of Spring Lake Park High school in Minnesota, and played his college ball at Bemidji State University. He went undrafted in the 2013 NFL Draft, and was signed by the Oakland Raiders. After playing his first two seasons for the silver and black, he went to the Cleveland Browns, where he was on the practice squad. The San Francisco 49ers signed him off of Cleveland's practice squad, and that's where he finished his season.

The 6'5", 255-pound Leonhardt has appeared in sixteen games in his NFL career with three starts. He has six catches for 35 yards and a touchdown so far in his NFL career.

Welcome to Minnesota, Brian Leonhardt!
