The Minnesota Vikings signed former Philadelphia Eagles offensive guard Josh Andrews, the team announced Tuesday via its official website.
Andrews joined the Eagles practice squad as an undrafted free agent in 2015 and has appeared in three games, all of which took place during the 2016 season. The former Oregon State standout played one offensive snap, as well as 12 on special teams during his time in Philadelphia.
After being cut in September, Andrews re-signed with the Eagles as a member of the team’s practice squad, where he spent the entire 2017 season.
The acquisition answers a need at offensive guard for Minnesota as the franchise currently has two players — Danny Isidora and Jeremiah Sirles — listed at the position among its 90-man roster.
Andrews will have the opportunity to make the Vikings’ official 53-man roster as he no longer has practice squad eligibility remaining.
Philadelphia currently has 11 remaining spots on its 90-man roster.
