Vikings Start Signing Rookies From The Bottom Up

It bugs us.

It shouldn’t, but it does.

The Vikings seem to always be the last to re-sign their own free agents and also always seem to be behind the curve when it comes to getting their draft selections under contract.

With the new Collective Bargaining Agreement including a rookie wage scale that greatly simplifies the process of signing rookies, these negotiations are much less volatile and we should not be worried, as fans, about whether or not our entire rookie class will be present for training camp.

They will be.

Still, it is newsworthy that the Vikings have finally started signing their rookie class. 

The signings have started with two seventh round picks, defensive end Trevor Guyton and linebacker Audie Cole, and there are likely more that will follow soon.

All rookies drafted from rounds two through seven will sign four year deals under the new CBA.  First rounders have a fifth year option.
