The Vikings re-signed center Brett Jones to a one-year contract Monday.
Jones, 27, was acquired in a trade from the Giants for a 2019 seventh-round draft choice in August and played in 14 games for the Vikings, including three starts at center while Pat Elflein recovered from injuries.
A native of Saskatchewan, Jones won a Grey Cup with Calgary in 2014 and was the Canadian Football League’s most outstanding lineman that season, after which he signed with the Giants.
The 6-2, 310-pound Jones started 14 of his 30 games with the Giants from 2015-17. He made $2.914 million last season, but his deal for 2019 has a base salary of $850,000.
• Free-agent quarterback Sean Mannion visited the Vikings on Monday, the team announced. Mannion, 26, was a third-round pick by the Rams in 2015 and has completed 33 of 53 passes for 258 yards in his NFL career.
• NFL offseason workout dates were announced Monday. The Vikings’ first day is April 15. OTAs will be May 21-23, May 28-30 and June 3-6. The team’s minicamp is June 11-13.
