EAGAN, Minn. — The Vikings on Tuesday announced they have re-signed center Brett Jones, who was waived last week when Minnesota added receiver Josh Doctson.
The Canada native is returning to a Minnesota team that he originally joined via a trade with the Giants in the summer of 2018.
Jones backed up rookie center Garrett Bradbury throughout this preseason. He has 17 career starts in 44 regular-season NFL games, including three of 14 played for Minnesota in 2018, and garnered high marks from analytics site Pro Football Focus during this year’s exhibition slate.
To make room for Jones, the Vikings waived undrafted rookie tight end Brandon Dillon.
The Vikings also released kicker Chase McLaughlin from the practice squad.
