Vikings agree to terms with defensive tackle Jonathan Bullard

In the midst of a spending spree on the open market, the Vikings are also making sure to take care of their own.

The team announced Wednesday that it has agreed to terms with defensive tackle Jonathan Bullard. The agreement came in the final minutes before Bullard was set to become a free agent. A source told the Pioneer Press that it’s a 1-year deal.

Though he isn’t necessarily a household name, Bullard emerged as a useful player on the interior of the defensive line last season. He grew into a key role for defensive coordinator Brian Flores, making 14 starts alongside fellow defensive tackle Harrison Phillips, and finishing with a career-high 44 tackles.

Originally selected by the Chicago Bears in the 2016 NFL Draft, Bullard has also spend time with the Arizona Cardinals, Seattle Seahawks and Atlanta Falcons. He appears to have found a home with the Vikings.
