Vikings sign veteran guard Kline
The Minnesota Vikings made a move to address their offensive line on Wednesday. Kline’s three-year deal, valued at $15.75 million, was done Wednesday as he finished a visit to team headquarters.
The subject of intense scrutiny last season, quarterback Kirk Cousins‘ first in Minnesota, the Vikings’ offensive line struggled throughout the year.
Tom Compton and Nick Easton departed in free agency, while the Vikings released veteran guard Mike Remmers last week.
Kline, who has started 46 consecutive games, should slide into his spot.
An undrafted free agent, Kline signed with New England in 2013 after playing at Kent State. He appeared in seven games as a rookie and 12 in 2014, winning a Super Bowl. Kline played in 14 games for the Patriots in 2015, with 13 starts, but was waived before the 2016 season.
Kline, who turns 30 in December, allowed three sacks in 16 games for Tennessee last year.
