Breaking: The Vikings have confirmed the signing of the 23-year-old linebacker to the practice squad ahead of Week 18…

The Vikings announced on Tuesday the signing of linebacker Abraham Beauplan to their practice squad.

Beauplan joined Minnesota earlier in the 2023 offseason as an undrafted free agent out of Marshall.

He recorded seven tackles, including one for a loss, while appearing in Minnesota’s first two preseason games. Beauplan played 17 defensive and 10 special teams snaps at Seattle and 33 and 23, respectively, against Tennessee.

The Florida native played three seasons of college football at Marshall, recording 231 tackles, 23 tackles for loss, 3.5 sacks, one interception, three passes defensed, and five forced fumbles.

Beauplan was waived in August with an injury designation.


Minnesota sports fans can support the community and show pride with new license plates.

Minnesota sports enthusiasts now have the opportunity to showcase their team pride while supporting community initiatives through the Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services’ new special license plates. With over 120 options available, including plates representing professional sports teams, two non-profit organizations, and a sleek blackout design, fans can now take their team spirit from the stands to the streets.

To acquire these special plates, individuals need to make a one-time payment of $15.50 and commit to an annual contribution of at least $30. The proceeds from these contributions will be directed towards charitable organizations, such as the Minnesota Vikings Foundation and the Minnesota Twins Community Fund. These foundations aim to promote youth health and education and support the overall well-being of children, both on and off the field.

The executive director of the Minnesota Vikings Foundation, Brett Taber, expressed enthusiasm about the impact these contributions can have on the community. He emphasized that the $30 contribution from fans can translate into tangible benefits, such as providing meals for kids in local communities, making a real and positive difference.


Similarly, the Minnesota Twins Community Fund, which has invested over $22 million since 1991 in enhancing the healthy development of children and families, stands to benefit from these license plate contributions. Nancy O’Brien, the Vice President of Community Engagement for the Minnesota Twins, highlighted that the additional revenue will help expand their outreach to more children and fund programs that connect youth with the game of baseball and contribute to their personal development.

In addition to supporting sports-related charities, drivers can also choose plates that benefit the Lion’s Club, the world’s largest service club organization, involved in various community service activities. Another striking option is the blackout plate, featuring white lettering, which has gained popularity in other states. The $30 fee for these blackout plates will contribute to programs at the Department of Public Safety Driver and Vehicle Services.

Interested individuals can obtain these special plates either online or in person at their local deputy registrar office, providing a unique and impactful way for Minnesota sports fans to display their pride and contribute to community welfare simultaneously.
