Although the Minnesota Vikings signed former Green Bay Packers’ wide receiver Greg Jennings, drafted Tennessee Volunteers’ standout receiver Cordarrelle Patterson just a year ago and have one of the league’s better tight ends in Kyle Rudolph, they are still looking for more pass catchers for Christian Ponder, Matt Cassel or potentially one of the quarterbacks in May’s draft to connect with.
On Tuesday, the Vikings made a roster move in an attempt to bolster their passing game.
According to Aaron Wilson of The Baltimore Sun and The National Football Post, citing a league source, the Vikings have agreed to terms with tight end Allen Reisner.
After going undrafted in 2011, the former Iowa Hawkeyes’ standout signed with the Vikings and went back and forth from waivers to the practice squad and back to the Vikings. Late in 2012, he was again placed on waivers and the Jacksonville Jaguars picked him up. He was on the injured reserve-designated for return list for the majority of the season.
He made five catches for 40 yards for the Jaguars last year and has seven career catches for 58 yards.
