Former Gopher MarQueis Gray was among the two waiver claims the Vikings won on Sunday.
Gray, who played quarterback for the Gophers and now serves as a tight end, was released by the Browns and announced his return to the Twin Cities on Twitter.

Along with Gray, the Vikings claimed offensive tackle Michael Harris, who was released by the Chargers, according to an NFL source. Both players have previously worked with offensive coordinator Norv Turner, who held the same position last season with the Browns and served as the Chargers’ head coach in 2012.
The Vikings must make two corresponding transactions to make room for Gray and Harris on the 53-man roster.
