Vikings re-sign OG Dakota Dozier

The Minnesota Vikings re-sign OG Dakota Dozier, the team announced today.

According to the Star Tribune’s Ben Goessling, it’s a one-year deal worth roughly $1 million.

The seven-year veteran joined Minnesota as a free agent last season. The West Columbia, South Carolina, native was selected by the New York Jets in the fourth round (137th overall) of the 2014 NFL Draft and has appeared in 54 career games with 11 starts.

Dozier, 28, most recently set a career-high with four starts in 2019, three at right guard and one at left guard, while also seeing time at center and appearing in all 16 games for the first time in his career. 

As a collegian, Dozier made 44 career starts for Furman, and was a First Team All-SoCon selection following both the 2012 and 2013 seasons. Dozier was also named a unanimous First Team FCS All-American following the 2013 season, only the seventh unanimous All-American in program history.
