Vikings Add DT TJ Smith

By Adam Roberts – 10/6/2021

The Vikings are bringing some depth to their defensive tackle position.

The team announced yesterday that they have signed TJ Smith. Smith was on the Chargers practice squad in 2020 but was cut from the team on August 25th.

Minnesota needed to add depth after starting nose tackle Michael Pierce injured his elbow against the Browns on Sunday. The team isn’t sure when Pierce will return.

The Vikings host the Lions this Sunday.
