Vigil was an impact player in his lone season with the Chargers.

After spending one year on the west coast, former Bengals and Chargers linebacker Nick Vigil is headed back to the midwest on a one-year deal to play with the Minnesota Vikings, per NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

In his lone year with the Bolts Vigil started just two of 15 games he played in, but managed to make more than his fair share of impact plays, especially for a depth player.

In the season opener against his former team at Cincinnati, Vigil recovered a pivotal fumble that helped shift the momentum in the Chargers’ favor as they managed to slide by after a shanked field goal.

Despite not being on the field for a significant amount of snaps, Vigil just seemed to have a knack for being around the ball. He finished the season with 50 total tackles, three tackle-for-loss, and a career-high two sacks while forcing one fumble and recovering two others.
