Former Michigan State TE Josiah Price signs with Vikings

Josiah Price-Minnesota Vikings-NFL-Michigan State football

The Minnesota Vikings signed Josiah Price as an undrafted rookie last May, but cut the former Michigan State tight end at the end of training camp. Now, Price will get a second chance with the Vikings, as the team announced on Wednesday that it has agreed on a one-year deal with Price.

Price took to Twitter after the announcement was made, expressing his excitement to be back with the Vikings.

Here is his tweet:

Price wrote:

“Excited to have signed another NFL contract! Can’t wait to get back to work with this great organization and teammates!”

Price will join a Vikings team that went 13-3 in 2017 en route to winning the NFC North. While the Vikings did not resign Case Keenum, they did a great job at replacing him, as they signed former Spartan and Washington Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins to a three-year, fully guaranteed deal. Cousins played his final season with the Spartans in 2011, which was one year before Price entered the program.

At Michigan State, the 6-foot-4, 249-pound Price caught 104 passes for 1,238 yards and 21 touchdowns, the latter of which is a Michigan State record among tight ends. He played 51 total games in his collegiate career, including 25 as a starter.

Price played in all four preseason games with the Vikings last season.
