With the release of cornerback A.J. Jefferson on Monday due to an arrest regarding a domestic violence incident, the Minnesota Vikings had an open roster spot to fill.

The Vikings filled the spot by claiming offensive lineman Mike Remmers off waivers from the San Diego Chargers.

Remmers was released by the Chargers on Saturday to make room for the addition of practice squad tackle Kenny Wiggins.

Remmers has played for the Denver Broncos, Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Chargers after being undrafted out of Oregon State in 2012. He was signed off the Buccaneers practice squad to the Chargers active roster in October and appeared in just one game against the Jacksonville Jaguars.

Remmers replaced King Dunlap at left tackle in the game briefly before suffering a high-ankle sprain and being carted off.
