The Vikings' inactivity with their draft picks would appear to be over. A day after getting Ray Edwards and Greg Blue under contract, the Vikings agreed to terms with defensive back Cedric Griffin.
Details of the contract were not immediately known, but it is reportedly a four-year contract (standard for second-rounders this year) with a $1.62 million signing bonus.
With Griffin signed, it leaves three picks still to complete -- first rounder Chad Greenway and second-round picks Ryan Cook and Tarvaris Jackson.
Griffin is expected to compete for a backup spot in the secondary as well as make an immediate impact on special teams.
* Zygi Wilf will meet with officials from the City of Minneapolis today. This comes on the heels of the bombshell dropped by the Army Corps of Engineers that it deems the land Wilf has proposed for his Northern Lights complex as partially a wetland. The meeting is far from a reversal of plan for building a stadium. Anoka County proponents will continue to fight to get the Army COE to back off its claim to jurisdiction over the land, while Minneapolis would have to change a city policy that believes the Vikings should play in a renovated version of the Metrodome.
