The Vikings have made it official in signing more than a dozen undrafted free agents.
That signing process could begin on Tuesday morning and the Vikings were busy early, inking 14 of them, including intriguing prospects like Hillsdale receiver Andre Holmes (6-foot-4). Kentucky running back Derrick Locke was not part of the signings, the Vikings confirmed, after initial reports had him agreeing to terms with the Vikings.
This year, under terms of the new collective bargaining agreement, teams were limited to $75,000 total in bonuses to rookie free agents, with an individual maximum of $25,000. The CBA also allows for 90 players on this year's training camp roster, an increase from 80, because teams didn't have the ability to have rookies practice during the lockout.
Here is the full list of those signed, according to the team:
Rod Huntley, OG, UTEP
Allen Reisner, FB/TE, Iowa
Marcell Gipson, CB, Wyoming
David Akinniyi, DE N.C., State
Byron Isom, OG, Auburn
Andre Holmes, WR, Hillsdale
Devon Torrence, CB, Ohio State
Ryan Hill, S, Miami
Conan Amituanai, OG, Arizona
Matt Asiata, HB/FB, Utah
Chris Adingupu, S, Prairie View
Dominique Johnson, WR, Cal Poly
Larry Dean, LB, Valdosta St
Nathan Whitaker, K, Stanford
