EAGAN, Minn. – The Vikings have added an outside linebacker to their roster by signing Curtis Weaver, the team announced Wednesday.

Weaver most recently was with the XFL's Seattle Sea Dragons, whom he signed with in November. He spent the first part of the 2020 NFL season on the Browns practice squad but was released on Oct. 4.

Originally a fifth-round pick by the Dolphins in the 2020 NFL Draft, Weaver spent the offseason with Miami but was waived after suffering a preseason injury. He was claimed off waivers by Cleveland, with whom he spent the 2021 season on Injured Reserve.

He recorded 43 tackles and 9.5 sacks as a redshirt sophomore. In 2019, Weaver racked up 13.5 sacks to bring his career total to 34, a Mountain West Conference record.

Weaver overlapped from 2016-18 at Boise State with Vikings running back Alexander Mattison, a 2019 third-round pick, and with guard Ezra Cleveland there from 2016-19.
