The Vikings on Monday announced they have signed six players from their 2022 practice squad to futures contracts.
The six players signed a day after Minnesota’s season ended after the Vikings lost to the New York Giants 31-24 at US Bank Stadium in Minneapolis during the Wild Card Round of the NFC Playoffs.
The six players signed on
Receiver Blake Proehl
Proehl was recently selected as the team’s winner of the Ed Block Courage Award for how he worked his way back from a leg injury suffered during 2021 training camp.

Gowan was elevated for three games in 2022, helping out for 15 total special teams snaps against Dallas, New England and at Detroit.
Tight end Nick Muse

Receiver Trishton Jackson
Outside linebacker Benton Whitley
Center Josh Sokol
Jackson, Proehl, Whitley and Sokol are yet to make their debut in a regular-season or postseason game.
