The Minnesota Vikings have signed defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, the team announced Tuesday.

The veteran agreed to a one-year deal worth $3.6 million that could increase to $4.35 million with incentives, a source told NFL Network's Tom Pelissero.

Richardson played the 2018 season with Minnesota, starting all 16 games while recording 4.5 sacks.

The defender inked a three-year, $36-million deal with the Cleveland Browns following his one-season stint with the Vikings. He started 31 games across two campaigns with the Browns before being released in April.

Richardson joins a stout front four under Mike Zimmer that already features Danielle Hunter, Michael Pierce, Stephen Weatherly, Jalyn Holmes, and the recently signed Dalvin Tomlinson.

The 2013 first-round pick has amassed 31 sacks over 118 career starts.
