Vikings Sign T Bobby Evans


EAGAN, Minn. – The Vikings are adding more depth to their offensive line.

Minnesota signed tackle Bobby Evans, the team announced Tuesday. The transaction came on the heels of Monday’s roster moves that included adding TE Colin Thompson and G Jack Snyder.

Evans isn't completely new to the Vikings, as he most recently spent a brief stint on Minnesota's practice squad to end the 2022 season.

The Texas native originally was a 2019 NFL Draft pick (97th overall) by the Los Angeles Rams, with whom he spent nearly four seasons before being released Dec. 31. Evans overlapped with Kevin O'Connell in L.A. in 2020 and 2021, when O'Connell served as the Rams offensive coordinator.

Evans played guard and tackle during his time with the Rams. As a rookie, he played 473 snaps as a tackle. He then was listed as a guard in 2020 and 2021 and contributed mainly on special teams. Evans played 12 games last season, starting four of them.

Evans played collegiately at the University of Oklahoma, where in 2018 he was part of an offensive line unit that won the Joe Moore Award, which annually recognizes the "toughest, most physical offensive line in the country."
