The Vikings are keeping running back Mack Brown in addition to safety Anthony Harris, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.

Minnesota will tender Brown a one-year, $630,000 contract, via Tomasson.

The Vikings claimed Brown off waivers last October from Washington, and he played one game, returning a kickoff for 17 yards.

He played 12 games with Washington over the 2016 and 2017 seasons and rushed for 111 yards and a touchdown on 16 carries.

  1. Good Luck Jet McKinnon, Hope your landing where you want and are wanted. You’re a great player and should get a more featured role. Great skill set, great person, you’ll be missed. Might fit in San Fran.

    I wish Jet the best, but honestly I expected more from him in the return game this year, and think there will be very few teams if any who give him a chance to be a feature back. He had his opportunities to have the feature role here and was average at best. He is a very strong #2 and change of pace back. Good luck Jet in your new home wherever that may be.

  3. This is extremely telling that the Vikings are so quick to keep these other 2 rbs along with Cook and Murray. Yes, you need more than 2 rbs for the entire season, and sure they could be camp bodies, but it’s still very surprising. Could this mean Murray is on the way out? Or perhaps Cook isn’t healing as well as expected from his acl injury? There has to be more to this than meets the eye. If it was just mack brown they were holding onto I wouldn’t be that surprised, but the fact that they already made sure they have 2 extra rbs besides cook and Murray raises eyebrows.

  4. Filthy at least they have RB’s not WR pretending to be a RB because he can’t get open at WR.
