The Vikings are adding a kicker.
Per Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Minnesota has signed undrafted free agent Gabe Brkic.
Brkic played his college ball at Oklahoma and was a finalist for the Lou Groza Award in 2021. He hit 20-of-26 field goals last season while also hitting 57-of-58 extra points.
In all, Brkic connected on 57 of his 69 field goal attempts in college.
By signing Brkic, the team has set up competition for Greg Joseph, who signed a restricted free agent tender worth $2.43 million in April. But because it’s not guaranteed, Brkic will likely get plenty of opportunities to beat out Joseph in the offseason program and training camp.
Joseph hit 33-of-38 field goals and 36-of-40 extra points for the Vikings in 2021.
