The Vikings have announced the signing of two draft picks -- fourth-rounder Ciatrick Fason and seven rounder Adrian Ward.
While Ward will have a tough battle to win a roster spot, Fason is expected to get an opportunity to get in the mix at running back behind Michael Bennett. For him, being in camp on time was critical.
VU will update this story with contract details when they become available. VU has been told that the team is in talks with the agents of all of their draft picks and that they remain hopeful to have everyone signed and in camp by Saturday's opening practice.
