MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings have signed former Detroit Lions offensive tackle Riley Reiff.
The Vikings announced the deal on Friday. The five-year veteran started 69 games for the Lions, including 48 at left tackle and 14 at right tackle.
Adding the former first-round draft choice was a huge priority for the Vikings, who finished a disappointing 8-8 last season thanks in large part to one of the worst offensive lines in the league. It is not immediately clear if Reiff will play on the left or the right side in Minnesota because the Vikings are continuing to look at bringing in additional help on the line.
