The Minnesota Vikings entered this free agency period with arguably the worst offensive line in the league and a multitude of questions as to how they would go about fixing it. On Thursday, they gave us an answer, reportedly agreeing to terms with the former first-round pick

Reiff, a first-round draft pick in 2012 (23rd overall) from the University of Iowa, has proven to be one of the more consistent linemen in the league and, along with former Ravens and now Lions tackle Ricky Wagner, was one of the top tackles available this free agency period.

According to Pro Football Focus, Reiff allowed four sacks, two quarterback hits and 38 quarterback hurries while starting 14 games last season at right tackle.

While in comparison to Wagner, Reiff is not quite as good at pass protection...

He is still an outstanding tackle and certainly an upgrade for a Vikings offensive line that allowed 37 sacks of quarterback Sam Bradford last season.

Reiff will likely remain at the right tackle position while the Vikings now turn their attention to addressing the ever-important left tackle spot.
