The Vikings have agreed to terms on a contract extension with long snapper Cullen Loeffler. Terms of the deal were not disclosed.
“I’m excited to be here with the Minnesota Vikings,” Loeffler said. “I love this organization and I’m really glad to be a Viking. I expect good things in the future.”
Loeffler is in his 8th season with the Vikings and has handled all the special teams snapping duties since joining the club as a rookie free agent in 2004. Loeffler has responded in big situations, snapping on 5 of the 6 longest FGs in team history and 4 of the 6 longest game-winning FGs, including a career-long 55-yard game winner at Chicago in 2007 by Ryan Longwell. Loeffler has helped punter Chris Kluwe re-write the Vikings record book for game, season and career punting for average, long punts and punts landed inside the 20.
Loeffler is only the second Vikings long snapper to appear in 100+ games. Mike Morris holds the record with 144 games while Loeffler has appeared in 116 games during his career.
