EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings added a quarterback to their roster on Monday, making Sean Mannion the newest signal-caller in Purple.

He spent the first four seasons of his career with the Rams, where he was a backup to quarterbacks such as Jared Goff, Nick Foles and Case Keenum.

The 26-year-old has joined Kirk Cousins and Kyle Sloter in the quarterbacks room.

Mannion has appeared in 10 NFL games and started one, which came in the 2017 regular-season finale after the Rams had secured a playoff berth.

He completed 20 of 34 passes for 169 yards with no touchdowns and no interceptions in a 34-13 loss in Week 17 to the 49ers.

Mannion, who has completed 33 of 53 total pass attempts in his career, has thrown for 258 yards.

Mannion was a third-round pick in 2015 out of Oregon State, where he put together a prolific career for the Beavers.

He set a gluttony of Oregon State career passing records, owning 18 school passing records after the 2014 season.

Mannion finished his career with 13,600 passing yards, which led the Pac-12 at the conclusion of his career but now ranks second. He ranks 10th in conference history (and first in school history) with 83 career touchdown passes.

Mannion also compiled a 64.6 career completion percentage, which still stands as the Oregon State record.
