Former Ohio wide receiver Donte Foster signed to the Minnesota Vikings’ practice squad Tuesday afternoon. The signing comes after the Vikings released fullback Blake Renaud.

Foster spent last season on the Vikings practice squad after coming in as an undrafted rookie in 2014.

In his senior year, Foster became the second wide receiver in Ohio football history to surpass 1,000-receiving yards in a single season, with 1018 yards total. He played a key role in both of Ohio’s bowl wins in 2012 and 2013. In the 2013 Beef ‘O’ Brady Bowl, Foster set a record for 160 yards receiving, earning him Most Valuable Player honors and All- Mac Second Team. Foster left Ohio with a career total of 2,180 total receiving yards and 19 touchdowns.
