EAGAN, Minn. - The Vikings on Tuesday announced they have signed tight end Jacob Hollister to their practice squad.

Minnesota terminated the practice squad contract of cornerback Parry Nickerson.

Hollister has appeared in 57 career games and made 12 starts since first entering the NFL in 2017 as an undrafted free agent out of Wyoming. He has 83 career receptions for 707 yards and seven touchdowns.

Hollister played 15 games and made one start as a rookie with the New England Patriots, recording four catches for 42 yards.

He appeared in another eight games and made one more start in 2018 when he totaled four catches for 52 yards.

Seattle acquired Hollister via a trade in April 2019. He followed with 41 receptions for 349 yards and three touchdowns that season. Hollister caught six passes for 44 yards in a 37-30 win over Minnesota in Seattle in December 2019.

Hollister found the end zone three more times in 2020 when he recorded 25 catches for 209 yards.

The native of Bend, Oregon, joined Jacksonville just before the 2021 season. He totaled nine catches for 55 yards and one score in seven games with the Jaguars.

Hollister was with the Raiders this offseason before he was released when Las Vegas reduced its roster.

Hollister's twin brother Cody is a receiver with the Tennessee Titans. Cody also entered the NFL as an undrafted free agent (out of Arkansas) at the same time as Jacob.
