The Vikings announced three signings on Wednesday, making official the return of kicker Kai Forbath.
Another player, tight end Josiah Price, is also returning to Minnesota after signing as an undrafted free agent a year ago out of Michigan State. The Vikings needed more bodies at tight end with only Kyle Rudolph, David Morgan and Blake Bell on the roster. It’s a one-year deal for Price, according to his agent Mike McCartney.
The Vikings also added a long snapper they list at 6-foot-8 and 280 pounds in Nick Dooley, who went undrafted two years ago out of UTEP. Dooley is an additional snapper as Kevin McDermott, the incumbent starter, returns from a dislocated shoulder suffered in late December.
The Vikings released Shaan Washington, the undrafted Texas A&M linebacker, on Wednesday. Washington had been placed on injured reserve in August with a season-ending leg injury.
