The Vikings claimed Cohl Cabral off waivers on Monday from Houston, adding depth at the center position.

Cabral signed a reserve/futures contract with the Texans on Jan. 1 after spending time last season with the Rams. Los Angeles signed Cabral as an undrafted free agent in 2020 and released him in November.

Cabral played college football at Arizona State, starting 39 consecutive games from the beginning of his sophomore season through his senior year.

Cabral becomes the third center on the Vikings’ depth chart behind starter Garrett Bradbury and Mason Cole, a center and guard, who was acquired from Arizona Cardinals for a sixth-round pick this offseason.
