UPDATE: The Vikings signed cornerback Parry Nickerson, a 2018 sixth-round pick by the Jets out of Tulane, on Monday, in addition to officially signing tackle Evin Ksiezarczyk.


All NFL teams were limited to five tryout players during rookie minicamps over the weekend, and the Vikings are expected to sign two players who auditioned.

Tackle Evin Ksiezarczyk, originally an undrafted signee by the Falcons in 2020, will sign with the Vikings on Monday pending a physical, according to a league source, after taking part in a three-day tryout. He was let go by Atlanta last year during roster cuts after training camp.

Cornerback Amari Henderson (6-1, 180 pounds) will also sign later in the week upon returning to Minnesota, according to a league source, after leaving due to personal reasons. Henderson went undrafted in 2020 out of Wake Forest, originally signing with the Jaguars last spring.

Ksiezarczyk (listed 6-6, 311 pounds) started 39 games at left tackle for the University of Buffalo. The Vikings entered the weekend with five roster spots available.

All Vikings players can begin reporting Monday for on-field workouts at TCO Performance Center in Eagan. Head coach Mike Zimmer said he expects good attendance from Vikings veterans despite a players statement through the NFL Players Association last month that said "many of us" won't attend amid a league and union fight over offseason workout rules during the pandemic.

Receiver Justin Jefferson is among the players who have said they're reporting Monday.
