Ellefson announced his retirement from the NFL on Thursday, Aaron Wilson of KPRC 2 Houston reports.

After three seasons in the league, Ellefson decided to hang up his cleats Thursday. The tight end will finish his career with four total receptions for 36 yards over 16 contests while operating mostly as a special-teams option as a member of the Jaguars and Vikings.

Ellefson re-signed with the Vikings on Wednesday, Craig Peters of the team's official site reports.

Ellefson will stay in Minnesota after it was reported earlier Wednesday by Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the team would not extend an RFA tender to him. He should provide depth to the team's tight end corps. The terms of his new contract have yet to be disclosed.

Expected to become free agent

Ellefson will not receive an RFA tender from the Vikings, Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press reports.

Ellefson played in only four games last season, missing most of the 2022 campaign with a groin injury. Tomasson notes that the Vikings may have an interest in re-signing him to a lesser contract than the $2.6 million right of first refusal tender amount.
