EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — Minnesota Vikings kicker Ryan Longwell says he has agreed to terms on a contract to return to the Minnesota Vikings.

Longwell confirmed the four-year deal in a text message to The Associated Press on Wednesday night. The remaining financial terms were not immediately available.

Bringing the super reliable veteran back was considered a priority for the Vikings this year. The 36-year-old Longwell has spent the last five seasons in Minnesota. Last season, he went 17 for 18 on field goals and 30 for 31 on extra points.

Longwell cannot officially sign the contract until Friday under terms of the new labor deal.

He says he’s excited to be back.
