Vikings agree to depth offensive lineman Oli Udoh

In an effort to further bolster their depth up front, the Vikings agreed to terms with offensive lineman Oli Udoh on Saturday afternoon, the latest move aimed at ensuring continuity in the trenches.

Already this offseason, the Vikings re-signed starting center Garrett Bradbury and backup center Austin Schlottmann, re-signed fellow offensive lineman Blake Brandel and re-signed veteran offensive lineman Chris Reed.

As for Udoh, he has become a useful piece on the offensive line. Originally drafted in the sixth round of the 2019 NFL Draft as a draft pick, the 6-foot-6, 320-pound Udoh has played in 41 games in his career with 17 starts under his belt.

Not only did Udoh fill in admirably last season after starting right tackle Brian O’Neill broke his right ankle, but he proved capable of playing both inside and outside the line in a pinch. His presence should help if O’Neill takes longer than expected to recover.
