Well, this year, the Vikings decided to just go ahead and announce them right around supper time in the Central time zone. . .but there appears to be a little bit of drama.
Here are the eight undrafted free agents that we can confirm have agreed to terms with the Vikings.
- Mike Brown, S, Miami (OH)
- Thomas Hennigan, WR, Appalachian State
- Bryant Koback, RB, Toledo
- Zach McCloud, LB, Miami (FL)
- Josh Sokol, C, Sacred Heart
- Tyarise Stevenson, DT, Tulsa
- Luiji Vilain, Edge, Wake Forest
- Ryan Wright, P, Tulane
There is a ninth name on the list of players the Vikings put out there earlier this evening, that of Virginia Tech wide receiver Tre Turner. However, according to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, Turner has changed course and will now be signing with the Las Vegas Raiders instead.
Source says that undrafted Virginia Tech WR Tre Turner is now going to the Las Vegas Raiders to sign instead of the #Vikings. Source said that Turner will get $40,000 total guaranteed with the Raiders while Vikings had offered $2,500. Vikings have been informed he's not signing.— Chris Tomasson (@christomasson) May 1, 2022
Depending on whether or not Turner is heading to Minnesota or not, the Vikings’ roster now stands at either 89 or 90 players. They had 71 before the start of the 2022 NFL Draft, and have now added their 10 draftees and either eight or nine undrafted free agents. That doesn’t mean the 90-man roster is set or anything yet. . .the Vikings usually have at least one or two tryout camps during the offseason and have been known to sign players from those to the roster.
Once we get clarification on the Turner situation and/or whether or not the Vikings are signing anyone else in the event that he’s heading to Las Vegas, we will update you on that.
