Vikes Sign Robinson

Proclaiming they may be done signing free agents (for now), the Vikings announced the signing of WR Marcus Robinson to a four-year deal.

Call it Dre Bly revisited.

Last year, Bly was ready to leave Detroit without a contract and come to Winter Park for a visit. Convinced the Vikings would sign him, the Lions increased their offer until Bly signed.

Much the same vibe reverberated Monday night after the Vikings agreed to a four-year deal with wide receiver Marcus Robinson.

Robinson was scheduled to fly to Detroit to meet with the Lions. After being offered a one-year deal last weekend that was rejected, the Vikings stepped up their offer and closed the deal.

VU has been told the contract is a four-year deal worth $9.2 million and includes a $2 million signing bonus.

Coach Mike Tice hinted that the Vikings may be done in the free agent market until after the draft next month, adding that Robinson and Antoine Winfield were the only players at their respective positions that the Vikings targeted in free agency -- and landed both.

* Considering how high the organization is on wide receivers Nate Burleson and Kelly Campbell, D'Wayne Bates' roster spot may be in doubt -- much like Derrick Alexander's was a year ago.
* Seahawks linebacker Isaiah Kacyvenski, brought in for a visit last week, re-signed with the Seahawks.
