EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Thursday announced the signings of tackles Christian DiLauro and Jarrid Williams.

In order to make room for the tackles on the roster, the Vikings terminated the contract of veteran tackle Bobby Evans.

DiLauro played college football at Illinois, where he started 38 games and garnered selection to the Big Ten All-Freshman Team in 2014.

He first entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with Cleveland in 2018 but was waived during the Browns roster reductions. San Francisco then signed him to the 49ers practice squad in September but waived him the following August.

The Texans signed DiLauro for a brief stint before he spent time on their practice squad. In October 2019, he was released by Houston and signed with Pittsburgh's practice squad. The Steelers waived him in September 2020.

DiLauro joined the Titans in the 2021 offseason and went on to appear in two games.

After a stint on Washington's practice squad last October, DiLauro joined the Broncos practice squad and eventually played in three games for Denver.


Williams played college football at Houston (18 stats in 28 games played from 2015-19) and the University of Miami (20 starts in 22 games from 2020-21) before joining Philadelphia as an undrafted free agent in 2022. He bounced through a couple of roster moves by the Eagles before spending roughly two months on the team's practice squad.

A short stint on Detroit's practice squad followed. The Eagles signed Williams to a future contract in January but waived him in May. He spent part of this summer with the Steelers.
