Beavers, 23, is a former fourth-round pick of the Vikings back in 2016. He signed a four-year, $2.87 million contract with the team but wound up being among their final roster cuts coming out of the preseason.

In 2016, Beavers was active for two games.
During his college career at Western Michigan, Beavers was a three-year starter and a first-team All-MAC as a senior.
