Vikings sign UDFA WR Garett Maag

The Minnesota Vikings have signed UDFA wide receiver Garett Maag, as reported by The Draft Network’s Ryan Fowler. The roster spot was made available with the retirement of tight end Ben Ellefson earlier Thursday.

Maag’s size (6-4, 210 pounds), paired with his ability, has made him a hot commodity since finishing his career at North Dakota. The former fifth-year senior was invited to the rookie camps of multiple teams, including the New York Giants and Philadelphia Eagles. He is a native of Inver Grove Heights, Minnesota.

Before the draft, he was listed by Fowler as a “sleeper to watch” because of his gaudy measurables at his pro day.

After this, he held a second pro day where he only ran routes and performed the bench press with teammate Tyler Hoosman. He impressed there as well, as scouts from 10 teams, including the Vikings, watched.

The Minnesota receiver room has suffered multiple casualties this offseason, perhaps opening up room for Maag to compete for significant reps this summer.

In his five collegiate seasons, Maag pulled in 164 receptions for 2,205 yards and 19 touchdowns.
