Vikings add guard Seth Olsen

Seth Olsen AP

The Minnesota Vikings announced the signing of guard Seth Olsen on Tuesday.

Olsen spent the last two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and previous stops in Denver and Minnesota. Olsen has appeared in 14 games in his career and started five games over the last two seasons. Olsen was set to be a restricted free agent but was non-tendered by the Colts making him free to sign elsewhere.

Olsen will be a depth option for the Vikings as Minnesota returns all five starters on the offensive line next season.

    I know you. You’re the guy that is a closet Viking fan but is too embarrassed to admit it because you’ll be seen as a bandwagon fan and shunned by your cheese wedge hat wearing brethren. It’s ok, there are many like you who missed the boat to join this fanbase. Just keep hoping for that time when you can call yourself a Viking fan. In the meantime, keep on posting!

    Why everyone hating on Ponder and the MVPeterson and Greg Jenning led Vikes. Last yr everyone said we would maybe 6 games. We won 10 and went to playoffs. Don’t be jealous!

    Is it too late to get in on that whole “Vikings will never win the Super Bowl” thing? Is that bit still fresh?

    This story may be the biggest, bar none, in the offseason in the NFL
    Thanks….

    Colts fans here. Our O-line was awful last year. Olsen still didn’t play much & we don’t want him back.

  17. pappavike says: Mar 20, 2013 1:52 AM

    If the Vikes are so bad? Why waste your time talking about them? You, must be secret Vikings fans to devote so much of your valuable time!!

    Its because in this sport you know who knows football and who doesn’t. Just some aren’t smart enough to be quiet about it. Anyone with even a small dose of brains wouldn’t even make asinine statements that carry no proof of football knowledge. In other words, the Vikings scare them. And they should, were getting better and they know it. If they don’t, they don’t know football.

    and still Green Bay stays out of the free agent period…

    Are you kidding me, add this guy to the Packers Oline and he is instantly the best blocker on their team. Just ask old Aaron if he would like to see some new faces on the pitiful offensive line.

    The Packers wouldn’t budge on their $600,000 offer so he picked Minnesota.

    Let me put it this way, if Seth Olsen ever sees the field during a game, the Vikings can pack it in for the day. Seth wants to remain the NFL so its understandable that he would sign with the Vikings, the last stop of many washed up players seeking one more year at inflated wages.
