The Minnesota Vikings announced Saturday that they’ve promoted S George Iloka from their practice squad to the active roster.
Chris Tomasson first reported that Iloka was expected to be elevated.
Minnesota also promoted Iloka ahead of last week’s game, but he reverted to their taxi squad soon after.
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.
So far this season, Iloka appeared in one game and recorded a tackle.
