Kyle Hinton signs rookie contract

New, comments

The last player drafted is not the last draftee to sign

NFL: Minnesota Vikings at Tennessee Titans

The Minnesota Vikings continue to finalize deals with the members of their draft class on the eve of rookies reporting to Training Camp, and we’ve got the terms of another deal for you to take in.

Offensive lineman Kyle Hinton, the last player the Vikings selected on draft weekend, has agreed to the terms of his rookie contract. The deal is a four-year pact worth $3.37 million, with a signing bonus of just over $75,000.

Hinton played his college football for the Ichabods of Washburn University, which ranks as one of the coolest nicknames in college sports, honestly. He can play anywhere on the interior of the offensive line for the Vikings, but seems to be the kind of player that could take a little bit of time to make the transition from Division II to the NFL.

Also, if the offensive line thing doesn’t work out, perhaps he has a future at tight end.

Honestly, who doesn’t like a good big man touchdown, eh?

With Hinton agreeing to terms, the Vikings are now over halfway to getting their rookie class signed, and we have a few more players that they agreed with today to tell you about, so stay tuned for those.
