EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. (AP) — The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with former Carolina Panthers offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz.

Schwartz made the announcement on Twitter on Wednesday, saying that he was excited to join the Vikings. Terms of the agreement were not immediately available.

Schwartz visited Vikings headquarters on Monday, but left without an agreement. He also visited the San Francisco 49ers and had discussions with the Detroit Lions.

The 25-year-old Schwartz spent his first three seasons with the Panthers. He made 19 starts in his first two seasons, but missed all of last year with a hip injury.

In Minnesota, Schwartz will likely compete with Joe Berger for the starting right guard spot on the team’s revamped offensive line. The Vikings released veteran guards Steve Hutchinson and Anthony Herrera earlier this month.
