Vikings sign Garett Maag

Chris Simms explains to Ahmed Fareed that Kirk Cousins falls at No. 12 in his top 40 QB rankings because he is a "ridiculously quick decision-maker and defense reader" who led the Minnesota Vikings to the playoffs.

The Vikings added a local product to their roster on Friday.

Wide receiver Garett Maag grew up near Minneapolis in Inver Grove Heights and he’s now a member of Minnesota’s only NFL football team. The team did not include any terms of the deal in their announcement of Maag’s signing.

Maag played in 49 games for North Dakota before going undrafted earlier this year. He caught 162 passes for 2,152 yards and 18 touchdowns during his time at the school.

The Vikings did not have to make a corresponding move to get Maag on the roster because tight end Ben Ellefson announced his retirement on Thursday.
