With players prepared to report to Mankato tomorrow, the time is running out to get the team's rookies signed and in camp.

Earlier this week, Mike Tice said he expects to have all his rookie class signed by Friday's opening of training camp. That gives him a little more than 24 hours to get the job done.

Most of the attention has gone toward Kevin Williams, but the Vikings also haven't signed second-rounder E.J. Henderson or fourth-rounder Onterrio Smith.

The buzz around Winter Park is that both Smith and Henderson could get done as early as today, but nothing is guaranteed. Like everyone else, Tice and Co. will have to wait and see what the front office people can get done on deadline.
