According to the Deseret News, Fahu is staying a Viking, having been resigned.

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings have re-signed restricted free agent fullback Naufahu Tahi.

The Vikings said Tahi, a former Granger High School star and BYU standout, signed his contract tender on Tuesday. The four-year NFL veteran has been primarily a blocker for Minnesota running back Adrian Peterson and a special teams player with the Vikings. Tahi (6-feet, 254 pounds) caught 10 passes for 67 yards and a touchdown out of the backfield last season.

Tahi, 29, rushed for more than 5,700 yards and set a state record for rushing touchdowns (66, since broken) during his prep career at Granger High. He had a combined 872 yards rushing/receiving and scored eight touchdowns during his senior season at BYU in 2006.
