Vikings Promote S George Iloka & CB Mark Fields To Active Roster

     

According to Chris Tomasson, the Vikings have promoted S George Iloka and CB Mark Fields from their practice squad to active roster. 

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. He signed on with the Vikings’ practice squad earlier this month. 

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

Fields, 22, wound up going undrafted out of Clemson back in April. He later agreed to a three-year, $1.755 million contract with the Chiefs.

Kansas City traded Fields to the Vikings coming out of the preseason for a 2021 seventh-round pick. However, Minnesota elected to waive him coming out of training camp and re-signed him to their practice squad. 

Minnesota promoted him to their active roster last week and reverted back to the practice squad following Week 2. 

During his four-year college career at Clemson, Field recorded 39 tackles, one sack, an interception, a defensive touchdown and 11 pass defenses over the course of 27 games.
