Vikings Aren’t Afraid To Wait

The Vikings have been slow moving compared to the rest of the NFL when it comes to signing their rookies.

There are only two rookies drafted in the fifth and sixth rounds of the 2010 draft that remain unsigned.  Both are Vikings.

Chris DeGeare (5th round) and Joe Webb (6th round) have yet to sign rookie deals despite the fact that training camp begins on Friday.  As we mentioned yesterday, however, it appears to be the team and not the players that are dragging their feet on these contracts for unknown reasons.

Also in need of contracts are Everson Griffen (4th round), Toby Gerhart (second round), and Chris Cook (second round).  Griffen is one of only five fourth round picks that still haven’t signed with their team.

Cook had not received an offer as of yesterday, but Gerhart says he expects his contract to be signed by Wednesday at the latest.

    Just another over paid, over stuffed jackass. What a shocker, dude “didn’t know…no one told me!”

    Nice start Dez. Deny, Deny, Deny……

    Call me crazy but I think we are pretty stacked at CB. Lito, Benny, Asher, not to mention Cedric and Toine’. I mean I know we need a solid nickel CB and at 6’2 Chris takes the cake as the biggest and one with the widest wing span. However, I’m not certain CB is the place for him. Can someone say safety? Cause I can. I’m just not sure I’m ready to see him body up against a wide receiver when he doesn’t have the best tackling skills. I can’t wait to see him at camp maybe than I’ll believe the hype, until then I have my reservations. As to whether or not the kid has what it takes to truly be our much needed shut down corner. You know I got a guy in mind for that….A Twice. Yeah I think I’ll stick to Double A. A Twice just sounds redunk. Geez Berrian get a bit more creative.
