Vikings Re-Sign OL Dakota Dozier

The Vikings are hanging on to another one of their offensive lineman. NFL.com’s Tom Pelissero reports (via Twitter) that the team has re-signed offensive guard Dakota Dozier. It’s a one-year, $1MM deal.

Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press tweets out some more info, noting that the 28-year-old will earn the veteran minimum of $910K, plus a $90K signing bonus. Dozier is expected to count $840K against the cap.

The 2014 fourth-round pick spent the first five seasons of his career with the Jets. He joined the Vikings last offseason, and he proceeded to appear in a career-high 16 games (including a career-high four starts). During his career, Dozier has appeared in 54 games.

The Vikings had already retained a pair of offensive lineman. Since the start of the offseason, the front office has re-signed center Brett Jones and offensive tackle Rashod Hill.

    Kinda wonder why they are hanging onto guys who were part of a horrible Oline??????????? They gonna magically be 75% better than they were last year??? They might have a mediocre line then if the likes of Riiey Rieff / Elflein / Hill /Jones / O’Neill / Samia / Udoh all vastly improve.
