EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. -- Fullback Naufahu Tahi is staying with the Minnesota Vikings.

The Vikings matched the Cincinnati Bengals' offer of a one-year, $1.4 million contract Friday, meaning Minnesota will keep the restricted free agent.

The Vikings signed Tahi off the Bengals' practice squad in 2006. He then beat out Thomas Tapeh for the Vikings' starting fullback job during the season and helped open holes for Adrian Peterson and Chester Taylor in the running game.

Tahi said in a statement released by the team that he's excited to helping the Vikings improve. He also said that he and Peterson got into a good groove in the second half of the season.
