The Minnesota Vikings acquired the 27-year-old centre from the New York Giants on Sunday in exchange for a 2019 draft choice.

Jones, who's listed at 6-foot-2, 312 pounds, started 13 games for the Giants last season.

While Elflein nearly certainly won't begin the season on the PUP, that doesn't mean he will play in the September 9 regular-season opener against San Francisco.

The payments were for fake legal invoices in connection with a nonexistent retainer agreement, according to the report. It started with former federal prosecutor Renato Mariotti's thread about the implications of Weisselberg "flipping".

Jones originally signed with the Giants in 2015 after winning the Most Outstanding Rookie and Most Outstanding Lineman awards in successive CFL campaigns (2013 and 2014).

Weyburn, Sask.'s Brett Jones is on the move. Pro Football Focus rated him as the second-best pass-blocking center in the NFL last season as he only gave up a total of 10 pressures.

Vikings coach Mike Zimmer said Sunday he does not expect Pat Elflein to practice this week, but added he does not believe the center will open the season on the physically unable to perform list. The move is a very good one by the Vikings, who clearly need line depth, a backup center they can trust and some insurance for the potentiality that Elflein won't be ready for the start of the season.
