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.

Three days and seven trades later, Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman netted his franchise 11 new players. Without a first round pick—and his preferred 10 selections—Spielman was, as expected, one of the league’s more active draft participants.

Over the course of three days, he executed trades with seven teams, swapping 20 total draft picks in a convoluted string of transactions. When he was finally happy with his draft board and the team’s position each round, Spielman settled, garnering a class you’ve come to know well thanks to the Welcome to the Big Show series.

After the jump, I’ll compile each of the breakdowns with links and helpful graphics. This landing page should become an instant bookmark for you; an easy-to-reference guide on the 2017 Vikings rookies.
