Vikings Sign Cook

Wanna guess where this story came from?  If you said ESPN.com, you're exactly right!

The Minnesota Vikings agreed to terms Wednesday on a four-year contract with offensive lineman Ryan Cook, their second-round draft pick.

He's guaranteed a little more than $1.5 million, including a $1.2 million signing bonus.

Cook, a standout at New Mexico who was a three-time first team All-Mountain West Conference selection, can play center and guard. He was taken with the 51st overall choice.

The Vikings have two draft picks left to sign, first-round linebacker Chad Greenway and second-round quarterback Tarvaris Jackson, before rookies are due to report to training camp on July 27.

They've got a week to get Jackson and Greenway signed.  It'd be nice to see the Vikes be among the first teams to get their #1 pick signed rather than among the last, but I'm not holding my breath.
