With the team in the midst of Offseason Team Activities, the Minnesota Vikings have added another player on the offensive line that they’d like to get a look at.

On Monday, the team claimed center Cohl Cabral off of waivers from the Houston Texans. Houston had waived Cabral over the weekend in order to sign offensive lineman Geron Christian.

Cabral, who played his college ball at Arizona State University, went undrafted in 2020 and wound up signing with the Los Angeles Rams. He spent part of the 2020 season on the Rams’ practice squad before he was let go and signed by the Texans to their practice squad. He has not yet appeared in an NFL game.

Cabral started 39 games over his final three seasons for the Sun Devils, with 37 of those starts coming at center. The other two were at left tackle.

It would appear on the surface that Cabral is a bit of a long shot to make the Vikings this season, but with the number of issues the Vikings have had on the offensive line in recent years, perhaps the team sees him as someone they could potentially develop down the line by putting him on the practice squad.

Welcome to Minnesota, Cohl Cabral!
