The front office for the Minnesota Vikings is continuing to get the job done a week after the 2019 NFL Draft, as two more members of the team’s draft class have officially signed their first NFL contract.
Arkansas defensive tackle Armon Watts and Texas cornerback Kris Boyd have both put pen to paper over the past couple of days, meaning that ten of the twelve players that Rick Spielman and company drafted last week are officially signed.
Watts, one of the team’s three sixth-round selections, actually signed his deal on Friday when everyone was in Eagan for the team’s rookie mini-camp. Here are the terms of his deal, per Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press.
#Vikings sixth-round pick Armon Watts, a defensive tackle, will sign a four-year, $2.689 million contract with a $169,096 signing bonus and he will count $537,274 against cap in 2019.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) May 3, 2019
Boyd, the first of the four picks the Vikings made in the seventh round of last week’s draft, signed his deal on Sunday morning.
#Vikings seventh-round pick cornerback Kris Boyd got a four-year, $2.629 million contract with a signing bonus of $109,676. It counts $522,419 against the salary cap in 2019.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) May 5, 2019
With these two signings, the only draftees that remain unsigned are the team’s first-round pick, North Carolina State center Garrett Bradbury, and the last player they selected, Air Force long snapper Austin Cutting.
Given the cap hit that Bradbury is going to carry, the team won’t be able to sign him until they clear up some space. It’s possible that Cutting’s deal is being held up by discussions about his service commitment, but there hasn’t been anything official on that yet. He was in Eagan this weekend participating in the rookie mini-camp with the rest of the team’s draft picks and undrafted free agents, however.
