Stacy Keely

Vikings Waive OL Adam Bisnowaty

Adam Bisnowaty‘s short tenure with the Vikings has come to an end. The team announced today (via Twitter) that they’ve waived the offensive lineman. The team has signed undrafted rookie defensive end Stacy Keely to take the open roster spot.

The former Pittsburgh standout was a sixth-round pick by the Giants back in 2017. He ended up starting the season finale as a rookie, but the Giants ultimately waived him several months later. Bisnowaty then bounced around the league a bit, spending time with the Lions and Panthers. He caught on with the Vikings in late October, and he proceeded to spend the rest of the season on the team’s practice squad.

The Vikings will see several additions to their offensive line next season, as they added free agent guard Josh Kline and drafted center Garrett Bradbury in the first round. The team also added veteran Dakota Dozier and rookies Dru Samia and Oli Udoh.

Keely had participated at last week’s rookie minicamp on a tryout basis, and he parlayed that performance into a contract. The UAB product was relatively productive in a reserve role this past season, compiling eight tackles, one sack, and one forced fumble.
