    Vikings add guard Seth Olsen

    Olsen spent the last two seasons with the Indianapolis Colts and previous stops in Denver and Minnesota. Olsen has appeared in 14 games in his career and started five games over the last two seasons. Olsen was set to be a restricted free agent but was non-tendered by the Colts making him free to sign elsewhere.

    Who Is Seth Olsen?

    Minnesota Vikings announced the signing of offensive lineman Seth Olsen. Olsen, a native of Willmar, Minnesota, went to the University of Iowa and was a fourth-round pick (#142 overall) of the Denver Broncos in the 2009 NFL Draft.He was released by the Broncos prior to the 2010 season, and the Vikings signed him to the practice squad for that year. The Vikings cut him during training camp in 2011, after which he signed with the Indianapolis Colts. He started four games for the Colts in 2012.
    Looks like we added some depth to the OL

    The 6-foot-4 Olsen played guard and both tackle spots at the University of Iowa and gives the Vikings a versatile backup.

    Well, lets see, is this going to be a thread where people congratulate him for signing players to add depth to the roster or bitching that it wasn't a WR?

    Seth is good depth. Nothing more, nothing less. I remember him from preseason with us and a little bit here in Indianapolis. Not gonna bitch about it. But I'm not jumping for joy either lol. It's all good with me as long as he doesn't start.

    Sorry Rick! Keep up the good work.

    Not sure why they resigned a guy they cut off the practice squad once already, unless he improved his play, but we need some solid the depth according to the depth chart. They only show Kropog as a backup for T position & no one else at T or G (Shcwartz signed elsewhere) & Kropog is a RFA.

    However, the roster does show 3 other lineman; Love, Holmes & Murphy. Not sure what their fate is.

    He was on the practice squad for all of 2010 & never elevated from there.

    Olsen, 27, spent all of 2010 on the Vikings' practice squad, was re-signed to a futures contract after the season and was released in the final cuts in 2011.
