Vikings re-sign TE Johnny Mundt

The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed reserve tight end Johnny Mundt, according to reports from NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and NFL insider Ian Rapoport.

Mundt, originally an undrafted free agent out of Oregon, spent his first five seasons with the Los Angeles Rams, seeing limited action and coming away with only three starts and ten receptions in those five seasons.

Since coming to Minnesota, Mundt has seen a significant increase in his usage, even as the team’s third tight end. Mundt got 12 starts in his first season with the Vikings in 2022, setting a new career high with 19 receptions.

Mundt’s 2023 season was devoid of starts and saw a slight dip in receptions, but Mundt was able to set a new career high in yards with 172. His time and contributions in Minnesota have led head coach Kevin O’Connell to refer to Mundt as “the NFL’s best No. 3 tight end”.
