Nice part about excess cap room... A number of other teams still need to wait until after June 1st cuts to sign the rookies (Packers for one, they have enough room to sign 1 or 2 guys though, but not their whole draft class)...

Wow! That was quick. Good for the Vikes' front office workin' that out early. Now to the others!

Certainly unusual for us to start signing the draftees this early - this rate we might be looking to have everyone signed in time for Training Camp

Tice must really love this guy to have signed him this early. I hope we are morely looking at a new kick returner and no keenan howry.

As long as we have a guy that will hold onto the ball returning punts and kicks, that's all I care about. Sure it would be nice to have a guy that can take it to the house a couple times a year, but I think our offense is good enough, that I just want someone who isn't going to turn the ball over.

I love the Idea that we are out there setting the bar instead of letting others set the price for a 4th round pick. They might have learned from last year on waiting with OSmith. They lost the bargining power after Bennett got hurt.

Hopefully we set the bar with Udeze and not let the others jump. We may actually get him cheaper.
