EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Saturday announced that they have agreed to terms of a contract with tackle Rashod Hill.
The re-signing of Hill will bring back an experienced player who has primarily handled the game-day role of "swing tackle," entering games as a reserve at left tackle or right tackle. He also has played as an extra tackle when the Vikings have used a heavy personnel package in short yardage.
Hill has appeared in 43 regular-season games, including 31 in the past two seasons. He made a career-best eight starts (three at left tackle and five at right tackle) in 2018. Hill has totaled 16 starts in regular-season games and opened a pair of playoff games.
The Vikings first acquired Hill in November 2016 by signing him off the practice squad of the Jaguars, the Jacksonville native's hometown squad. Hill entered the NFL in May 2016 as an undrafted rookie free agent in May 2016 after playing collegiately at Southern Miss.
