Vikings to sign RB Myles Gaskin

The Minnesota Vikings have made a move to bolster their running back room. According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, the Vikings are signing former Miami Dolphins running back Myles Gaskin.

The move to add a running back to the active roster makes total sense for the Vikings. They only had three on the roster and Kene Nwangwu feels primed to go on injured reserve after missing most of training camp due to injury.

In coming to Minnesota, Gaskin reunites with his former head coach Brian Flores. He was a starter for Flores back in 2021 where he had his best season with 946 all-purpose yards and seven touchdowns.

Gaskin can come in and play on all three downs, which is something that Kevin O’Connell seems to prioritize.

With the signing of Gaskin, there will need to be a corresponding roster move. That is likely going to be Nwangwu to injured reserve. That will come to fruition at 11 am central on Wednesday, August 30th.
