The Vikings reached a one-year deal with restricted free agent Matt Asiata, according to a league source. The deal will give the running back an opportunity to make more through incentives.
While Asiata’s role for 2015 is uncertain due to the Adrian Peterson situation, the Vikings like what the 27-year-old brings to the table.
In 2015, Asiata started in nine of his 15 games and rushed for 570 yards and a team-high nine touchdowns. He also caught 44 passes for 312 yards and a touchdown.
