The Minnesota Vikings have signed N'Keal Harry, a free agent wide receiver who was selected by the New England Patriots as the final pick of the first round in the 2019 NFL draft.
Harry, who is 25 years old, was the final pick of the first round and also the first wide receiver to be selected by the Patriots in that year's draft. He played for the Patriots until 2021, then played a year with the Chicago Bears before signing with the Vikings.
The Vikings signed Harry to fill a roster spot after defensive lineman James Lynch tore his ACL during last Thursday night's practice. Harry is joining the Vikings to increase depth at the wide receiver position. The terms of the contract have not been disclosed.
