The Vikings are adding another offensive lineman to the roster.

The team announced on Friday that they have reached agreement on a contract with guard Chris Reed. The team did not announce the terms of that agreement.

Reed played 14 games and made six starts for the Colts last season. He started 14 games for the Panthers in 2020 and has made 29 starts in his 61 appearances for Indianapolis, Carolina, Miami, and Jacksonville.

Reed went to Minnesota State, so the move to the Vikings brings him back to a familiar state. It also reunites him with college teammate Adam Thielen, who will be back at receiver for the Vikings for his ninth NFL season.

  1. Fantastic, fantastic signing. Kwesi is building a powerhouse to contend for 3rd place in the NFCN for years to come.

  2. And the rich get richer!!!

    Welcome to The Dynasty Chris! SKOLLLLLLLLLL!!!!!

  3. Very good signing. I would say both Davis’ and Reed should be hungry and want to fight for the job. Not all 5 guys on the OL need to be first or second rounders; sometimes you just need someone who truly wants to fight for the position and this could be a good thing.

  4. If they stopped signing these cast-offs they maybe could have signed JC Tretter and fixed a position of need for once. I swear Rick Spielman is still employed by the Vikings and Kwesi is just the talking puppet.

  5. Reed is a very good guard. Depending on the money, this looks like a really good signing.

  6. Reed played very well in place of Quentin Nelson for the Colts last year. It was widely thought he would have been resigned to compete for the RG position for them this year.

  7. Chris grew up a Viking fan same as Theilen, that puts a little more fight in the dog!

  8. Fans of some teams that have the #1 seed and lose at home should probably take a break from posting on other teams sites. Choking at home is pretty ugly. Like continously! Lmao

  9. Don’t know much about Reed, but Colts fans are disappointed that he left, so this seems like a decent signing by the Vikings.

  10. Unclear to me why certain folks seem to be trash talking. The last time I checked, the Packers won the exact same number of playoff games last year as every other team in the division.

  11. The Vikes brain trust must have a plan that prevents Bradbury from getting pushed into Cousins’ lap by nose tackles.
