Greg Joseph will be staying in Minnesota for at least one more year. The kicker has signed his RFA tender, as announced by his agent Brett Tessler (Twitter link via Aaron Wilson of Pro Football Network).
The 27-year-old has found himself on a number of both 53-man and practice squad rosters since entering the league in 2018. Originally signed by the Dolphins as a UDFA, his first action came with the Browns. He made 17 of 20 field goal attempts in Cleveland, along with 25 of 29 extra points.
He wasn’t able to retain his starting spot during the following training camp, though, which had him on the move again. After a stint on the Panthers’ practice squad, he made two appearances with the Titans. The FAU alum then spent the entire 2020 campaign with the Buccaneers; he didn’t make any appearances in Tampa Bay, but still capped off the season with a Super Bowl ring.
That led to his deal with the Vikings last offseason. Coming in as the replacement for Dan Bailey, Joseph played in all 17 games in 2021. He made 33 of 38 field goal attempts, good for a success rate of 86.8%. He also converted 36 of 40 extra points. That level of success led to the Vikings tendering him, and he will now spend multiple seasons with the same team for the first time in his career.
