Source: Vikings agree to terms with tight end Johnny Mundt

With star tight end T.J. Hockenson recovering from a torn anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament, the Vikings are fortifying the rest of the position group.

In advance of free agency next week, the Vikings agree to terms with tight end Johnny Mundt on Friday, a source confirmed to the Pioneer Press. He was set to become an unrestricted free agent.

The move isn’t surprising given how glowingly head coach Kevin O’Connell has talked about Mundt in the past. They have a relationship dating back to their shared time together with the Los Angeles Rams.

After finishing last season with 17 catches for a career-high 172 yards, Mundt figures to play an even bigger role in 2024, especially with Hockenson not expected to be ready for the season opener.

For his career, Mundt has 46 catches for 405 yards and two touchdowns across 81 games. Not bad for somebody who went undrafted out of college in 2017.
