The Vikings signed guard Seth Olsen, who played the past two seasons for Indianapolis.
Olsen (@SethOlsen) tweeted the news this afternoon and the team later confirmed it in a release.
Olsen, drafted by Denver in the fourth round in 2009 out of Iowa, was cut by the Broncos after one season. He was on the Vikings practice squad in 2010. The Colts claimed him off waivers at the start of the 2011 regular season.
Olsen, 6-5 and 305 pounds, was born in Willmar, but played high school football in Omaha. The 27-year-old started five games over the past two seasons with the Colts, but was hampered by a knee injury.
