Well, ladies and gentlemen, we have made it to the end of the 2017 NFL Draft! All of the picks are in, and now the second half of the process can get underway.

This will be the place where we curate all of the rumors and innuendo. . .and probably some actual signings, too. . .of players in the scramble for Undrafted Free Agents across the National Football League.

It might not be as glorious as the actual draft itself, but the Undrafted Free Agent process is a big part of building an NFL team. After all, there are a ton of players that slip through the cracks that will find their way onto NFL rosters this coming season. And who could forget that one of the greatest Vikings of all time, defensive tackle John Randle, went from undrafted free agent to the Pro Football Hall of Fame?

So, we will do our best to piece together who has signed with the Vikings, who’s rumored to be signing with the Vikings, and all of that fun stuff for you in one place here. Feel free to talk about any rumors you’ve seen or heard. . .and NO GIFs here, either, as a lot of folks will be coming here looking for Vikings’ information and we don’t want them getting bogged down.

Thanks to everyone that’s come to The Daily Norseman for their 2017 NFL Draft coverage, but we’re not done yet!
