O’Neill has started 59 games for the Vikings since being drafted in the second round in 2018. According to the Vikings, he allowed just one sack this past season.

The Vikings signed O’Neill to a contract extension just before the 2021 season.

“I want to be a Viking for my whole career,” O’Neill said at the time.
