Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Short-yardage receiver in 2022
Mundt caught 19 of 21 targets for 140 yards and a touchdown while playing in all 17 games during the 2022 regular season.
Mundt saw by far the most extensive playing time of his career after following Vikings first-year coach Kevin O'Connell to Minnesota this past offseason. The 28-year-old tight end also accumulated more receptions and receiving yards than he did over the first six seasons of his career with the Rams. Mundt still finished the season in a reserve role behind prolific receiving tight end T.J. Hockenson, who was acquired via trade from Detroit midway through the season. With 2019 second-round pick Irv Smith currently set to become a free agent this offseason, Mundt could be in line to serve as Minnesota's No. 2 tight end in 2023.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Earns catch Sunday
Mundt caught his only target for a 12-yard gain in Sunday's 27-22 win over the Jets.
Mundt operated as the team's No. 2 tight end behind T.J. Hockenson, seeing the field for 24 snaps on offense. It was the 28-year-old's third consecutive game with a reception. He'll likely play a similar role Week 14 against the Lions.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Minimal role with new TE
Mundt had one reception for one yard in Sunday's win at Washington.
Mundt played 15 snaps on offense and went out on four routes. T.J. Hockenson had nine receptions and played on 60 snaps, so Mundt didn't see any short-term bump in playing time while Hockenson got acclimated to his new team. Mundt will have a limited, primarily blocking, role with Hockenson in the fold.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: TD catch in win
Mundt had a one-yard touchdown reception on his only target in Sunday's win over Arizona.
It was just Mundt's fifth target in his last three games (five receptions for seven yards during that stretch). He's been an afterthought in the passing game once Irv Smith got up to full speed after the first few games after a preseason thumb injury. However, Mundt could be pressed into a larger role with Smith now likely out several weeks with an ankle injury. Still, Mundt's role may not increase too much, as he's not seen as skilled as a receiver.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Has drop on only target
Mundt had a drop on his only target in Sunday's win over New Orleans in London.
Mundt played just 20 snaps on offense and went out on just five routes, as his role has shrunk with Irv Smith back to full speed after preseason injuries.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Two receptions Sunday
Mundt had two receptions for 23 yards on two targets in Sunday's win over Detroit.
Mundt wasn't on the field as a starter like the previous two games and played fewer snaps than Irv Smith, Jr. (37 to 28). Mundt will remain part of the offense but won't get more than a few targets per game.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Gets another start at TE
Mundt had two receptions for 28 yards on three targets in Monday's loss at Philadelphia.
Mundt started at tight end for a second consecutive game, but Irv Smith had the larger workload with eight targets and more snaps on offense (34 to 28). With Smith being eased into action after thumb surgery, Mundt's role in the passing game should decrease as Smith gets even more opportunities.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Gets start at TE in season opener
Mundt had three receptions for 17 yards on three targets in Sunday's win over Green Bay. He started at tight end with Irv Smith coming off the bench because Smith was eased into action, the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports.
It was Mundt's fourth career start, but he could see a reduced role if Smith returns to full speed Week 2. However, there's no guarantee Smith will get back to his prior form after missing 2021 with a knee injury and working his way back from an Aug. 2 thumb issue that required surgery.... See More ...

Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Feels great after opener
Mundt felt great after the Vikings' preseason opener and did not suffer any setbacks, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Mundt is in line to compete with the likes of Ben Ellefson, Zach Davidson, Nick Muse and Shaun Beyer for the team's No. 2 tight end role behind Irv Smith. As of now, he appears to have completely moved on from the torn ACL he suffered last October.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Could get looks with Smith out
Mundt is the leading candidate for the starting tight end job with Irv Smith (thumb) sidelined for the preseason and possibly early in the regular season, Dane Mizutani of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.
Mundt will compete with Ben Ellefson, Nick Muse and Zach Davidson, as there wasn't a clear No. 2 tight end before camp began. All three backups are seen as mostly blockers, so the Vikings would likely reduce the tight end's role in the passing game if Smith were to miss regular season games. Still, it's worth watching Mundt's development in the preseason, as offensive coordinator Wes Phillips suggested Mundt has untapped potential as a pass catcher.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Moves past knee issue
As training camp opened, Mundt saw work as the second tight end when the Vikings opted to go with two in practice, Arif Hasan of The Athletic reports.
Mundt is thus past the knee issue that limited him in OTAs, and the former Ram will now look to secure a depth role in a Minnesota tight end corps that is led by Irv Smith and also includes Ben Ellefson, Zach Davidson and Nick Muse. In six games with Los Angeles last season, Mundt caught his only target for nine yards. In his new locale, the 27-year-old figures to continue to make most of his impact as a blocker.... See More ...

Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Back in action
Mundt is participating in training camp after working on the side during mandatory minicamp in June, Arif Hasan of The Athletic reports.
Mundt -- who is moving past a knee issue -- worked as the Vikings' second tight end behind starter Irv Smith when the team deployed two tight-end sets during Wednesday's 11-on-11 drills. The 27-year-old was signed by the Vikings in March after he mostly served in a blocking role with the Rams over the previous five seasons. Therefore, Mundt's fantasy relevance likely will be minimal despite his projected status as the team's first option behind Smith in training camp.... See More ... See Less
Vikings' Johnny Mundt: On track for training camp
Mundt (knee) has been working on the side during OTAs but believes he'll be ready to go by training camp in late July, Chris Tomasson of twincities.com reports.
Mundt was deployed almost exclusively as a blocker during his five years in Los Angeles before the Vikings signed him as a backup to Irv Smith this offseason. His path to targets in 2022 isn't clear barring an injury to Smith, and even then Minnesota probably would prefer to throw the ball to Justin Jefferson, Adam Thielen or Dalvin Cook underneath....

Vikings' Johnny Mundt: Signs with Vikings
Mundt (knee) signed a contract with the Vikings on Wednesday.
Mundt appeared in six games with the Rams in 2021, serving mostly as a depth tight end while hauling in his lone target for nine yards. He sustained a torn ACL in mid-October, so he'll likely be sidelined for the entirety of the Vikings' offseason program. Mundt could be ready to go at some point in training camp, but for the moment, his availability for the start of the 2022 campaign is muddled.... See More ... See Less
Rams' Johnny Mundt: Returned to IR
Mundt (knee) was activated from the reserve/COVID-19 list Thursday and returned to injured reserve.
The tight end entered COVID protocols Dec. 15 before being reinstated Thursday. Mundt will still remain on IR for the rest of the season after suffering a torn ACL in mid-October.... See More ... See Less
