After signing Riley Reiff on Thursday, the Vikings added a second offensive tackle on Friday by agreeing to terms with Mike Remmers.

The Vikings may have found their long-term answers at both tackle positions. Remmers is 27 years old and Reiff is 28.

According to the Houston Chronicle, Remmers is a natural right tackle who had to start at left tackle last season in Carolina. At 6-foot-5, 310 pounds, he has started 37 games in his five-year career.

With Remmers at right tackle the Vikings will likely start Reiff at left tackle. Vikings.com notes that Reiff started for the Lions at left tackle from 2013-15 and right tackle in 2016.
