Vikings Start Signing Rookies Despite NFLPA Objections
The NFL Players Association told Minnesota Vikings draftees not to sign their rookie contracts. Apparently, there’s language in the contracts that the players union feels violates the Collective Bargaining Agreement (CBA) between the players and the league.
Despite the NFLPA objections, rookie wide receiver Rodney Adams and defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo both signed with the Vikings today without resolving the contract language. Adams was drafted in the 5th round and Odenigbo in the 7th.
