The Vikings officially announced the return of guard Dakota Dozier on Tuesday afternoon and they also dropped someone from their roster.

Tight end Hale Hentges has been placed on the reserve/retired list. If Hentges wants to return to play in the future, the Vikings will hold his rights.

Hentges was signed off of the Colts’ practice squad last December and played seven special teams snaps in his lone appearance with the team. Hentges played 11 games for Washington in 2019 and caught eight passes for 103 yards and a touchdown.

With Hentges off the roster, the Vikings are left with Irv Smith Jr., Tyler Conklin, and Brandon Dillon at tight end.

    By far the best TE group in the NFC north.

    If you mean “every team in the NFCN has to keep their own TEs” then I think the three other teams would be happy to oblige. It does surprise me though how a team with the “best players, best coach and best GM” in not only the division but in the conference can’t seem to get to where those “bests” should get them. What’s amiss?? Hmmmmmmm

  2. You do realize the green bay TEs are garbage? Led the league in fumbling and also dropped balls inside the 20 and also lowest in the whole league in YAC.

    Thanks for trying! 👌

    You do realize Green Bay’s TE led the NFL in TD’s last year… Hard for YAC when your catching passes in the end zone… As a matter of fact he had more TD’s than all the Vikings TE’s combined… You should try thinking before posting foolish garbage on here all the time

    Thanks for trying

  4. WHO???????????????????????????????????? My Vikings need to get off their asses and sign a left tackle (Mitchell Schwartz/Eric Fisher) so they can draft either Micah Parsons or Gregory Rosseau-come on dammit, make me smile for once!!!!!!

  5. Good lord ariana and mj 13.. what really matters is that the packers have the GOAT and the Vikings DONT. Were gonna be better in 21 tho.

  6. Why is Dakota Dozier even on this team? Do defensive tackles really need someone to escort them to the quarterback?

  7. I don’t see how these stumblebums can get back to 7 wins this season if they keep losing players.

    Well they will have Barr, Kendricks and Hunter coming back from injury along with Pierce finally playing after opting out last year and we majorly upgraded the other DT spot. Their young secondary now has a year of experience which will be huge. They clearly need to target the OL in the draft but it doesn’t take much to upgrade from the OL they had last year. I’m not saying they’re a title contender but the team will be greatly improved from last year.

    You cannot be talking about the guy who lost 4 championship games and flops against 49ers, buckaneers and lost one game against a 3rd string Vikings last year, right?
