After the final cuts this past weekend, the Minnesota Vikings filled out the majority of their practice squad by signing 13 players, all of whom had been in Training Camp with the team. They completed their 16-man practice squad on Monday with three more signings.

As was mentioned earlier in the week, the Vikings signed kicker Chase McLaughlin to the practice squad. We had gotten word of the potential signing on Sunday, but it became official on Monday. McLaughlin spent a week on the Vikings’ practice squad last season, and then bounced around to a few other teams, including the San Francisco 49ers and Indianapolis Colts. The Colts released him earlier this year, and now he finds himself back with Minnesota.

The team also brought back linebacker Hardy Nickerson, who spent Training Camp with the Vikings but was waived when the team claimed former New York Giants linebacker Ryan Connelly on Sunday.

The other new face on the practice squad is defensive tackle Albert Huggins, Huggins was an undrafted free agent out of Clemson in 2019, and has bounced around quite a bit. He’s had two stints with the Philadelphia Eagles and two with the Houston Texans. He’s also spent time with the New England Patriots, and was most recently with the Detroit Lions.

With those three signings, the full Vikings’ practice squad looks like this:

  • FB Jake Bargas
  • OT Blake Brandel
  • QB Jake Browning
  • OL Aviante Collins
  • TE Brandon Dillon
  • CB Mark Fields
  • OL Kyle Hinton
  • WR Alexander Hollins
  • DT Albert Huggins
  • OL Brett Jones
  • LB Blake Lynch
  • K Chase McLaughlin
  • CB Nate Meadors
  • S Josh Metellus
  • LB Hardy Nickerson
  • QB Nate Stanley
