Super Bowl-winning kicker Greg Joseph is signing with the Minnesota Vikings. 

That's the word from Joseph's agent, Brett Tessler, who tweeted Tuesday afternoon that Joseph is inking a deal with the Vikings after spending the entire 2020-21 season protected from interested teams on the Tampa Bay Buccaneers practice squad. 

Joseph did not attempt any kicks all season. In 2019 he made all nine extra-point attempts with the Tennessee Titans, while he made 17 of 20 field goals and 25 of 29 extra points in his 2018 rookie season with the Cleveland Browns. 

Of his 20 field-goal attempts in 2018, he was perfect from inside of 40 yards while going 5 of 7 on kicks 40-49 yards, and 1 of 2 on kicks of 50+ yards. 

It's not yet clear if Joseph will be Minnesota's kicker going forward, though Minnesota may be looking for a change after Dan Bailey struggled this past season. Bailey, however, remains under contract with the Vikings and has a $3.8 million cap hit in 2021, according to SpoTrac.
