The Vikings and rookie left tackle Bryant McKinnie have agreed to terms of a contract, according to Vikings spokesman Bob Hagan. The Vikings had until Nov. 12 to sign the holdout rookie in order to get his services yet this year.
Terms of the deal weren't being released by the team, but it is reportedly a five-year deal worth a total of $13.5 million (with a $9.3 million bonus). We will pass on any further information in tomorrow's update.
McKinnie will not be meeting the team in Tampa Bay, according to Hagan, but the No. 7 overall pick in April's draft is expected to speak en masse publicly Monday afternoon at the Vikings' regular Monday afternoon press conference.
