Vikings Re-Sign C Brett Jones To Practice Squad


Chris Tomasson reports that the Vikings are re-signing C Brett Jones to their practice squad after cutting him loose earlier in the week. 

The Vikings have confirmed the news. 

Minnesota’s practice squad now consists of:

  1. RB Jake Bargas
  2. T Blake Brandel
  3. QB Jake Browning
  4. T Aviante Collins
  5. TE Brandon Dillon
  6. G Kyle Hinton
  7. WR Alexander Hollins
  8. LB Blake Lynch
  9. QB Nate Stanley
  10. K Chase McLaughlin
  11. DE Abdullah Anderson
  12. DB Luther Kirk
  13. DE Eddie Yarbrough
  14. DB Marcus Sayles
  15. C Brett Jones

Jones, 29, was selected in the second round of 2013 CFL draft by the Calgary Stampeders. In just two years with the Stampeders, Jones won CFL’s Most Outstanding Rookie Award (2013) and the Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award (2014).

Jones signed on with the Giants back in 2015 and returned to New York on a one-year restricted deal worth $2.914 million for the 2018 season. The Giants later traded him to the Vikings for a seventh-round pick.

The Vikings re-signed Jones in April of last year to a one-year deal. He was released early in the season to make room for WR Josh Doctson and has been on and off of their roster ever since. 

In 2020, Jones appeared in five games for the Vikings.
