Vikings sign former Bears OT Levi Horn

Posted by: Mark Craig under Vikings, Bears, NFC, Phil Loadholt Updated: May 18, 2012 - 1:47 PM

The Vikings have added another body to the offensive line. A big body. Goes by the name Levi Horn, a 6-7, 315-pounder who spent most of the past two seasons on the Bears' practice squad.

Horn, who played at Montana after transferring from Oregon, gives the Vikings some more offensive tackle depth to evaluate behind starters Matt Kalil and Phil Loadholt heading into training camp.

Horn joined the Bears as an undrafted rookie in 2010. He spent that season and most of 2011 on the practice squad. He was activated in November of 2011, but did not appear in any games. He was released by the Bears earlier this week.

"I'm looking forward to playing for a team with great tradition and pride," Horn told ndnsports.com. "I thank [the Vikings] for giving me a chance and will look to improve my skills and hopefully contribute to the Vikings success next season."
