The Vikings are bringing offensive lineman Brett Jones back on a one-year deal worth the veteran minimum ($910,000), a source confirmed.
The Vikings traded with the Giants for Jones before the 2018 season to give themselves another center option with Pat Elflein still recovering from offseason shoulder and ankle surgeries. They have kept Jones for interior line depth since then. He played two games last season, and could compete for a job at guard after the Vikings released Josh Kline.
The 28-year-old Jones, a former Canadian Football League standout, will be entering his fifth NFL season.
