At long last, the Minnesota Vikings have bolstered their injured and depleted offensive line.

Dalton Risner, who had a free agent visit prior to the season, has officially agreed to a 1-year deal with the team.

Risner began his career with the Denver Broncos, and the Vikings will be the second team of his career.

Risner provides immediate depth for a Vikings offensive line that has done a subpar job protecting Quarterback Kirk Cousins in an 0-2 start.

Christian Darrisaw and Garrett Bradbury have both missed time due to injury, and the entirety of the offensive line needs a boost, which is one major reason for the signing.

Risner does have position versatility, as he can play left or right guard, and also played right tackle in college at Kansas State.

The Minnesota Vikings look for their first win of the season on Sunday, when they collide with the 0-2 Los Angeles Chargers in Minneapolis.

Ten Most Disappointing Minnesota Sports Seasons

The 2021 Minnesota Twins entered the season with high expectations, but unfortunately, they've made the list of most disappointing Minnesota teams of all time.

Disappointment is a common feeling for Minnesota sports fans as the years continue. Following the NBA Championship win for Milwaukee, SportsCenter was quick to point out that Minnesota has the current longest streak of seasons without a championship appearance in the four major sports (MLB/NBA/NFL/NHL). The Minnesota Lynx also chimed in on the stat after claiming four championships since 2011.

The ten teams that are on this list all follow a similar pattern. The year prior was either a great season with a playoff run or one that featured a strong core of players that appeared to have taken the next step. Offseason/preseason expectations were high with even Las Vegas oddsmakers believing in a deep run. Unfortunately, those preseason expectations fell short for the following teams. None of the teams listed below made the playoffs.
