The Minnesota Vikings are in the reuniting business this week as they are welcoming back a familiar face from a few years ago.

On Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings agreed to terms to bring back defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson to help bolster their up-front attack.

The veteran defensive lineman spent the 2018 season with the Minnesota Vikings, excelling enough to get a big contract from the Cleveland Browns.

Cleveland rewarded Richardson with a three-year deal and after he started 31 games in those two seasons, the Browns released him in the spring to save about $11 million against the salary cap.

Richardson was a former first-round pick of the New York Jets and the Vikings are hoping they get the best of Richardson to add to a very stout defense on paper.

With Michael Pierce returning from the COVID-19 opt-out, Danielle Hunter coming back from injury, the addition of Tomlinson in free agency and now Richardson, the Vikings should be much improved on the defensive line in 2021.
