Vikings Adjust Practice Squad

Posted by Mike Wobschall on September 6, 2010 – 10:45 am

Building and maintaining an NFL roster is a never-ending process and that process continued today for the Vikings as they tweaked their practice squad a bit.

The Vikings have added G Seth Olsen and T Thomas Welch to the  squad while G Thomas Austin was released.

Olsen stands at 6-4, 305 pounds and is a product of the University of Iowa. He was drafted by the Denver Broncos in the 4th round of the 2009 NFL Draft but was among the team’s roster cuts last weekend. Welch registers at 6-7, 310 pounds and comes to the Vikings from the New England Patriots. He played college football at Vanderbilt and was selected by New England in the 7th round of the 2010 NFL Draft.
