LSU defensive end Tashawn Bower signed a free agent deal with the Minnesota Vikings, he confirmed via text and Twitter.
Bower, a 6-foot-5, 250-pounder from Somerville, N.J., had 60 career tackles in four seasons of limited play but had three sacks in his final game against Heisman Trophy winner Lamar Jackson in LSU's 29-9 Citrus Bowl victory.
Here's what NFL.com's Lance Zierlein says about Bower:
Long-levered edge man with good muscular development. Has frame for additional weight if needed. Transition from 4-3 to 3-4 defense this season seemed to suit him. Light appears to be coming on for him. Uses length to stab tight ends and take control of the edge. Adequate lower body power to battle against tackles.
