On Friday, former Vikings coordinator Mike Priefer announced he will handle special teams for Kitchens.Kitchens and the Browns reached agreement earlier this week, but as of Friday night the team had still not confirmed his hiring. There don’t appear to be any major obstacles to prevent Kitchens from being named the team’s 17th full-time coach.It’s just taking time.Priefer, who was suspended three games by Minnesota in 2014 for an insensitive remark Brett Jones Jersey , released a statement saying he’s coming to Cleveland to work for Kitchens. Priefer spent the previous eight seasons coaching special teams with the Vikings.“I am excited to work with Coach Kitchens, John Dorsey and the entire Browns organization,” Priefer said. “I will always remember my time spent with the Vikings and deeply appreciate everyone that I was able to work with during my time there.”Priefer has some Cleveland roots. He was born in Cleveland and his father, Chuck, began his coaching career in Northeast Ohio before getting to the NFL as a special teams coach.Priefer also has some baggage.The Vikings have suspended him without pay for the first three games in 2014 after an independent investigation into claims by former punter Chris Kluwe showed that Priefer made a homophobic remark during the 2012 season. Priefer later and had his suspension was reduced to two games.“I regret what has occurred and what I said,” Priefer said four years ago. “I am extremely sorry but I will learn from this situation and will work on educating others to create more tolerance and respect.”By all accounts, Priefer has been a model citizen since and he’s proven to be a solid coach.

The 49-year-old Wilks was dismissed after going 3-13 season. He’s got a strong defensive background and previously ran Carolina’s defense in 2017.Wilks served as the Panthers’ defensive backs coach from 2012-14 and was promoted to assistant head coach in 2015-16. He’s also been a secondary coach in Chicago and San Diego.Former Denver coach Vance Joseph was scheduled to visit the Browns over the weekend, but he was hired by new Cardinals coach Kliff Kingsbury on Friday. With Everson Griffen still not back with the team, the Minnesota Vikings have brought back a familiar face in case they need to quickly add another defensive end to the fold.On Monday, the Vikings re-signed defensive end Jonathan Wynn to their practice squad.Wynn was an undrafted free agent signing out of Vanderbilt this past season, and spent all of Training Camp with the Vikings, being dropped by the team as a part of their final cuts. With the Vikings being so deep at the defensive end spot. . .well Danielle Hunter Jersey , at least early on. . .his making the team was always considered a long shot, but given the current circumstances it’s not surprising that he’s back.In order to make room for Wynn on the practice squad, the Vikings waived linebacker Garret Dooley.The Vikings’ practice squad is now comprised of the following players:WR Jeff BadetWR Chad BeebeLB Reshard CliettDT Curtis CothranC Cornelius EdisonG Colby GossettTE Cole HikutiniCB Jalen MyrickOT Storm NortonDE Jonathan Wynn
