MINNEAPOLIS (FOX 9) - The Minnesota Vikings signed a pair of restricted free agents on Monday and appear to have a new quarterback to be the No. 2 behind Kirk Cousins.
The Vikings announced Monday they’re bringing back safety Anthony Harris and offensive tackle Rashod Hill. They also signed free agent quarterback Sean Mannion and wide receiver Jordan Taylor.
Harris is entering his fifth NFL season and set career-highs last year with nine starts, three interceptions and 46 tackles. He’s played in 51 games with 17 starts since joining the Vikings in 2015.
Hill played in all 16 games for the Vikings and made eight starts on the offensive line. The Vikings signed Hill from the Jaguars practice squad in 2016. He’s played in 28 games with 15 starts for the Vikings.
Mannion is entering his fifth NFL season and joins the Vikings after being the back-up quarterback to Jared Goff with the L.A. Rams last season. He spent four years with the Rams and played in 10 games, with one start.
The Vikings signed Mannion after last year’s back-up for Kirk Cousins, Trevor Siemian, left Minnesota to sign a one-year deal with the New York Jets. Siemian never saw the field for the Vikings in the regular season.
