Vikings Sign Sean Mannion to Practice Squad

EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Thursday continued to modify their roster by signing quarterback Sean Mannion to their practice squad.

Mannion spent the past two seasons as the backup to Kirk Cousins, but he appeared in just one regular-season game in that time.

The 29-year-old started against Chicago in the 2019 regular-season finale that did not affect Minnesota's position in the NFC Playoffs. He completed 12 of 21 passes for 126 yards and was intercepted twice.

Mannion signed with Seattle last month and completed 33 of 49 passes for 228 yards with one touchdown and a passer rating of 84.4 during the preseason when the Seahawks completely rested Russell Wilson.

The Oregon State product was initially drafted by the Rams in the third round of the 2015 NFL Draft, one spot after the Vikings selected Danielle Hunter.

Mannion played in 10 games over the course of four seasons with the Rams, including the team's last season in St. Louis and first in Los Angeles.
