Vikes Bring Back Fullback Asiata
Fullback Matt Asiata was signed by the Vikings as an undrafted free agent following last year’s NFL Draft.
The Utah product was apparently impressive enough that the Vikings decided to extend him a two year futures contract offer, and Asiata accepted.
Asiata was cut prior to the 2011 season but then signed with the practice squad. He spent one week on the practice squad before hip issues caused him some problems and the Vikings let him go.
As it stands right now, Asiata would again be competing with Ryan D’Imperio for playing time at the fullback position.
