The big free agency splash we've all been waiting for the Minnesota Vikings to make has finally occurred!

OK, not really, but there is some news to report.

The Vikings have tendered restricted free agent Mike Harris according to Andrew Krammer of 1500 ESPN. Harris played in nine games in 2014, starting five at right tackle after Phil Loadholt was lost to injury last season. Harris was serviceable if not great during his fill-in duty so the Vikings have decided to keep him around for offensive line depth--something that was an obvious need last season.

The offer that the team made is worth over $1 million. Harris made $570,000 last year. The Vikings get the right of refusal if Harris receives any offers from other teams when free agency officially opens in just over two hours.

According to Krammer's report, the third of Minnesota's restricted free agents, linebacker Dom DeCicco, won't be tendered. DeCicco was placed on IR before the 2014 season started.
