Vikings Expected To Sign S George Iloka


The Minnesota Vikings hosted free agent S George Iloka for a visit on Tuesday.

According to Chris Tomasson, Iloka is in the Twin Cities going through coronavirus protocols with the expectation of signing with the Vikings later this week.

Minnesota waited until after Week 1 to consider signing Iloka, as it prevented his 2020 base salary from being guaranteed. 

Iloka, 30, is a former fifth-round pick of the Bengals back in 2012. He was in the third year of his five-year, $30 million contract that includes $5 million guaranteed when the Bengals elected to cut him loose during the preseason. 

The Vikings later signed Iloka to a one-year contract worth the veteran minimum of $790,000. After becoming a free agent in 2019, Iloka signed a one-year, $1 million deal with the Cowboys last year. However, Dallas released him coming out of the preseason. 

Iloka wound up sitting out the 2019 season. 

In 2018, Iloka appeared in all 16 games for the Vikings and recorded 16 tackles, no interceptions, and a forced fumble.
