  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Plays two offensive snaps in 2023

    Muse appeared in two games during the 2023 season, catching his only target for a 22-yard gain.

    The 2022 seventh-round pick secured the first catch of his NFL career Week 18 against the Lions. In total, Muse played just two offensive snaps in 2023 and another 29 on special teams. He didn't see action until after T.J. Hockenson suffered a season-ending torn ACL in Week 16. Muse will compete for a reserve role next summer. He's scheduled to be an exclusive rights free agent.

  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Won't play Sunday

    Muse (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's Week 8 contest in Green Bay.

  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Out Week 1

    Muse (coach's decision) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Buccaneers.

  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Catches TD in preseason debut

    Muse had three receptions on four targets for 10 yards, including a four-yard touchdown catch, in Thursday's preseason loss at Seattle.

    Muse is mostly known as a blocker and special-teams player, but he showed some red zone ability with a towering grab over a defender for a touchdown. He helped his case to win a final reserve role on the roster but may have to settle for the practice squad.

  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Inks another deal with Minnesota

    Muse signed a reserve/future contract with the Vikings on Monday.

    Muse bounced back and forth between Minnesota's active roster and practice squad this season. Over 10 appearances, the rookie seventh-rounder served as a core special-teamer while playing just two offensive snaps all season. Muse will look to carve out a larger role on offense heading into the 2023 campaign.

    Muse was signed to the Vikings' practice squad Saturday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

  • Nick Muse: Waived by Minnesota

    The Vikings waived Muse on Friday, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.

    Muse played exclusively on special teams across 10 appearances with the Vikings this year but has been waived to make room for Irv Smith (ankle), who's expected to be activated from injured reserve ahead of Sunday's game against Chicago.

  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Joins 53-man roster

    Muse was signed off the team's practice squad Monday, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

With his official move to the active roster, he should make his fifth appearance of the season with Minnesota on Thursday against the Patriots.

  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Signs with active roster

    Muse signed a contract with the Vikings on Saturday.

    The Vikings needed a third tight end and did have an empty roster spot. Muse has been active for the three games this season, but he's played a total of two offensive snaps and 20 total during that stretch.

  • Nick Muse: Returns to practice squad

    The Vikings reverted Muse to their practice squad Monday, per the NFL's transaction log.

    Minnesota elevated Muse for the second time this season prior to Sunday's Week 9 win over the Commanders. Though the 23-year-old didn't log any snaps on offense, he did see four special-teams snaps. Even if he's elevated again, Muse is unlikely to see much (if any) work on offense with T.J. Hockenson and Johnny Mundt ahead of him on the depth chart.

    Muse received the promotion with Ben Ellefson out with a groin injury. The rookie tight end played six snaps on special teams, but he did not record any stats. With Ellefson now on IR, it's possible Muse could be elevated to the active roster in Week 6 against the Dolphins.

  • Vikings' Nick Muse: Elevated to active roster

    The Vikings elevated Muse on Saturday from their practice squad to their active roster for Sunday's matchup against the Bears, Alec Lewis of The Athletic reports.

    Muse, a rookie seventh-round pick, caught four passes for 40 yards during the preseason and landed a spot on the Vikings' practice squad after going unclaimed through waivers at the end of August. Minnesota recently placed Ben Ellefson (groin) on injured reserve, so Muse will compete with Johnny Mundt for backup snaps behind Irv Smith.
