Johnny Mundt Staying In Minnesota

According to NFL Media's Tom Pelissero and Ian Rapoport, tight end Johnny Mundt has agreed to a new deal with the Vikings. The 29-year-old began his career with the Rams but spent the last two years in Minnesota. In 79 regular season games, he amassed 46 catches for 405 yards and two touchdowns. Unfortunately, that type of production won't earn him a place on most fantasy rosters, considering his presence is more crucial as a member of the special teams unit.

Johnny Mundt Stays Busy In Loss To Lions

Minnesota Vikings tight end Johnny Mundt had an elevated role yet again in the Week 18 regular season finale against the Detroit Lions on Sunday with T.J. Hockenson (knee) out. The 29-year-old had season-highs in catches (five) and receiving yards (58) while drawing six targets. His 58 receiving yards finished second on the team behind receiver Justin Jefferson's 192 yards. In Week 17, Mundt had four catches for 39 yards and his first touchdown of the year. Fellow tight end Josh Oliver also had two receptions for 31 yards in Sunday's 30-20 loss. Mundt will be venturing into free agency this March as he heads into his eighth season in the NFL. He'll be competing for a backup role with whichever organization he ends up signing with. Mundt had 17 catches for a career-high 172 yards and one touchdown in 17 games in 2023.
