Vikings Agree to Terms with Myles Gaskin & David Quessenberry, Waive Jalen Reagor


EAGAN, Minn. – The Vikings agreed to terms with running back Myles Gaskin and offensive lineman David Quessenberry, the team announced Wednesday. Pending physicals, both are expected to join the 53-man roster Thursday.

In order to make room for the signings, the Vikings waived receiver Jalen Reagor and placed running back Kene Nwangwu on Injured Reserve.

Gaskin was most recently with the Dolphins, who released him Tuesday as part of their roster reductions.

A seventh-round draft pick in 2019, Gaskin spent four seasons in Miami, starting 17 of 38 games played. He totaled 361 carries for 1,355 yards and seven touchdowns. In addition, he recorded 101 catches for 701 yards and six touchdowns through the air.

A native of Lynnwood, Washington, Gaskin attended Seattle O'Dea High School and then shined at the University of Washington from 2017-18. He became the first true freshman in Huskies history to rush for more than 1,000 yards, finishing with 1,302 on 227 carries. Gaskin also set a freshman record with 14 rushing touchdowns.

Gaskin finished his collegiate career with a school-record 62 touchdowns, which ranked second in Pac-12 history, and 5,323 rushing yards, which ranked third in conference history. When he declared for the NFL Draft, he also held Washington record for 100-yard rushing games (26), carries (945), rushing yards per game (102.4), rushing touchdowns (57), rushes of 50-plus yards (10) and all-purpose yards (5,878).


Quessenberry was released by the Bills released Tuesday.

A former standout at San Jose State, Quessenberry was selected by the Texans in the sixth round of the 2013 NFL Draft, but he landed on Injured Reserve that September.

Quessenberry sought medical evaluation in June 2014 after dealing with fatigue and a persistent cough and was diagnosed with Non-Hodgkins Lymphoma. But after completing cancer treatments and overcoming the illness, he returned to participate in Texans OTAs in May 2017.

Quessenberry also spent time with the Titans (2018-21) before signing with the Bills last spring. With Tennessee, he caught his first receiving touchdown on a pass from Marcus Mariota in Week 2 of the 2019 campaign.

Over five NFL seasons, Quessenberry has played 51 games, including 26 starts. He started all 17 games for the Titans in 2021, playing all 1,183 offensive snaps.

Reagor was acquired last August in a trade with Philadelphia. He caught eight passes for 104 yards and a touchdown on 13 targets for the Vikings in 2022. Reagor also served as the team's primary punt returner, totaling 167 yards on 26 returns (6.4 yards per return).

Nwangwu has been dealing with an undisclosed ailment throughout August.
