Vikings Officially Sign S George Iloka To Practice Squad


The Vikings announced they have signed S George Iloka to the practice squad. 

Minnesota was expected to bring the veteran on board and will take advantage of the new eligibility rules in 2020 to add him to the practice squad. 

Minnesota’s full practice squad now includes: 

  1. RB Jake Bargas
  2. T Blake Brandel
  3. QB Jake Browning
  4. T Aviante Collins
  5. TE Brandon Dillon
  6. DB Mark Fields
  7. G Kyle Hinton
  8. WR Alexander Hollins
  9. C Brett Jones
  10. LB Blake Lynch
  11. DB Josh Metellus
  12. QB Nate Stanley
  13. LB Hardy Nickerson
  14. DT Albert Huggins
  15. K Chase McLaughlin 
  16. S George Iloka

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.
