EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Thursday announced they have signed tackle Hakeem Adeniji from their practice squad to the 53-man roster.

The team also announced it has signed former Minnesota Gophers quarterback Tanner Morgan to its practice squad.


Adeniji (uh-DENN-ih-gee) joined the Vikings practice squad on Aug. 31. A sixth-round pick by the Bengals in 2020, Adeniji appeared in 39 games, including 15 starts for Cincinnati. The native of Garland, Texas, played left and right tackle in three seasons with Cincinnati.

Adeniji played college football at Kansas (2016-19), starting all 48 Jayhawks games in that span and earning All-Big 12 First Team honors as a senior.

Morgan originally entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent with the Pittsburgh Steelers in May 2023, but he was released by the team following the 2023 preseason.

A six-year student-athlete at the University of Minnesota (2017-22), Morgan started 47 of the 51 games he appeared in for the Gophers, setting the school record for wins by a starting QB (33). He completed a school record 62.2 percent of his passes during his career (661 of 1,063), recording 9,454 passing yards and 65 touchdowns. The completions, attempts, percentage, yardage and passing touchdowns rank second all-time in Gophers history.

Morgan, who is from Union, Kentucky, threw a touchdown pass in a school-record 18 consecutive games from Dec. 26, 2018-Nov. 13, 2020.
