Minnesota Vikings waive Jaylen Twyman and sign Patrick Jones

The Minnesota Vikings made a series of roster moves on Monday, signing three of the players the team selected in the 2021 NFL draft, including former Pitt defensive end Patrick Jones. However, the team also waived former Pitt defensive tackle Jaylen Twyman to clear up roster space for former Jacksonville Jaguars wide receiver Dede Westbrook.

With the signing of Jones, along with former North Carolina linebacker Chazz Surratt and Ohio State product Wyatt Davis, the Vikings finalized their 2021 draft class. Jones went to the Vikings with the No. 90 overall pick in the third round of the draft and was among the last to sign with the team.
