Hikutini signed a reserve/future contract with the Cowboys on Monday, Michael Gehlken of The Dallas Morning News reports.
Analysis: Hikutini, an undrafted tight end out of Louisville, has spent time with the 49ers, Vikings and Cowboys across his three years in the league. He'll look to carve out a role in Dallas this offseason.
Hikutini was waived by Minnesota on Saturday, Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com reports.
Analysis: Hikutini showed some promise as an undrafted rookie in 2017 while with San Francisco but he's been unable to make an active roster since then. He may get a look as a practice squad candidate.
Hikutini signed a reserve/future contract with the Vikings on Wednesday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Analysis: Hikutini finished the 2018 season on the Vikings' practice squad after getting cut by the 49ers prior to the start of the regular season. He'll now get a chance to secure a potential No. 4 job at tight end behind Kyle Rudolph, David Morgan, and Tyler Conklin.
Hikutini (groin) caught his lone target for 18 yards in Thursday's preseason win over Dallas.
Analysis: Hikutini was dealing with a minor groin injury last week, but he appears to have gotten over the issue in short order. Starting tight end George Kittle suffered a shoulder injury Thursday, so Hikutini will serve as the primary backup to Garrett Celek until Kittle returns to action.
