Dozier has re-signed with the Vikings on a one-year, $1 million deal, Tom Pelissero of NFL Network reports.
Dozier is primarily a depth lineman, but he started four games in 2019. The 28-year-old will presumably have a similar role in the upcoming season.
Dozier signed a contract with the Vikings on Thursday, Eric Smith of the team's official site reports.
Dozier has spent the previous five seasons with the Jets and appeared in 37 total games with seven starts, all at right guard. He'll initially provide Minnesota with depth at offensive line.
The Jets have ruled the following players inactive for Sunday's divisional clash against the Patriots in Week 16: T.J. Barnes, Dakota Dozier, Jaiquawn Jarrett, Wesley Johnson, Rontez Miles, Walt Powell and Matt Simms.
The New York Jets listed defensive lineman Muhammad Wilkerson (toe), guard Dakota Dozier, offensive lineman Wesley Johnson, wide receiver Walt Powell, defensive back Josh Thomas, quarterback Matt Simms and cornerback Antonio Allen as inactive Sunday at Tennessee.
