By Craig Peters,

The Vikings on Tuesday announced the signing of defensive lineman Jalen Redmond.

Minnesota waived receiver Devron Harper to create room on the roster for Redmond.

Redmond joins the Vikings after playing for the UFL's Arlington Renegades this spring. He played in four games and recorded 18 tackles, five tackles for loss and 4.5 sacks for the Renegades.

The native of Midwest City, Oklahoma, entered the NFL in 2023 with Carolina as an undrafted free agent out of Oklahoma University. He spent the offseason program with the Panthers but was waived last August.

As a Sooner, Redmond posted 71 tackles, 31.5 tackles for loss, 14 sacks, a forced fumble and two fumble recoveries in starting 19 of 36 games played from 2018-22.

Harper had joined Minnesota this spring as an undrafted rookie free agent out of Mercer University.
