The Vikings announced the signing on Tuesday. Olsen was on the Vikings practice squad in 2010 and spent the past two seasons playing for the Indianapolis Cotls. He made five starts for the Colts and returns to his home state to serve as a backup at both guard and tackle.

The Vikings were in the market for another versatile player after veteran backup Geoff Schwartz signed with the Kansas City Chiefs.

Olsen grew up in Willmar before playing in college at Iowa. He'll fall in behind a unit that brings all five starters back from the group that paved the way for star running back Adrian Peterson last season.
