We reported last night that John Carlson, tight end and Minnesota native, was being brought in to visit with the team. Now it’s looking very likely that he will be signed.
According to Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press, parameters of the deal are currently being discussed. Carlson is likely to be a Viking by the end of the day.
Parameters of a deal for TE John Carlson are being discussed, not yet finalized, I'm told. Could very well get done today.
