Guard Dakota Dozier Returning to Vikings


EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Saturday announced they have re-signed with guard Dakota Dozier.

Dozier initially signed with the Vikings as a free agent in 2019 after spending the first five seasons of his career with the Jets.

In 2019, Dozier started a total of four games (one at left guard, three at right guard), playing 362 offensive snaps (35.6 percent of total offensive snaps) in 2019.


He fared well in his starts, building on previous experience with Vikings offensive line coach Rick Dennison, who coached Dennison in New York in 2018.

Dozier could challenge for the starting right guard spot after the release of Josh Kline, but can also be counted on to provide strong depth for Minnesota's offensive line in 2020.

The 28-year-old Dozier has appeared in 53 career games with 11 total starts.
