EAGAN, Minn. - The Vikings have re-signed center Brett Jones, the team announced Friday.

The 2020 season will mark Jones' third with Minnesota.

In August 2018, the Vikings acquired Jones from the Giants via trade in exchange for a 2019 seventh-round draft pick. He started the first three games of the 2018 season when Pat Elflein was recovering from an injury suffered during the previous season's NFC Championship.

Jones re-signed with Minnesota for the 2019 campaign but played just two games for the Vikings. He was placed on Injured Reserve prior to Week 11.

The native of Saskatchewan, Canada, entered the NFL in 2015 when he was signed by the Giants after

spending two seasons in the Canadian Football League. He was named the CFL's Most Outstanding Rookie after his 2013 campaign with the Calgary Stampeders and in 2014 received the CFL's Most Outstanding Offensive Lineman Award.

Jones spent his first season in New York on Injured Reserve. From 2016-17, he started 14 of 30 games played for the Giants.

Jones was a standout at the University of Regina and was a second-round selection in the 2013 CFL Draft.
