EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings continued to add to their practice squad Thursday by signing receiver Travis Toivonen, a native of Red Wing, Minnesota, and cornerback Tay Gowan.

Toivonen earned Class 4A All-State Third Team honors from The Associated Press as a senior at Red Wing High School in 2015 when he led the state with 1,037 receiving yards in eight regular-season games.

He totaled 137 receptions for 1,705 yards and 13 touchdowns for the North Dakota Fighting Hawks from 2016-19. Toivonen spent part of 2021 on the New York Giants practice squad.

CB Tay Gowan

Gowan entered the NFL as a sixth-round pick by Arizona in the 2021 NFL Draft. He later joined Philadelphia and played in two games last season for the Eagles, totaling two tackles.

A native of Covington, Georgia, Gowan played college football at Butler Community College in Kansas before transferring to UCF.

The additions of Toivonen and Gowan, combined with the dozen who signed Wednesday, bring the Vikings practice squad to 14 players. The maximum for all teams is 16.
