Minneapolis, MN - With one fell swoop of a pen the floodgates have opened for the Vikings as they continue on their quest to ink all of their 2013 NFL Draft picks to contracts before organized team activities kick off Wednesday, May 29th.
The first to go, former Penn State Linebacker Gerald Hodges.
Hodges announced the new via Twitter Tuesday morning saying, "Happiest moment of my life. I got called up to sign my contract after my workout."
Hodges, the Vikings fourth round selection, should kick off the cavalcade of Vikings rookies expected to sign on with the team over the next two weeks. Now that players are wrapping up with their school year's, they will be spending more time around Winter Park with more opportunities to be called up to Rick Spielman's office hoping to sign their deal making them an official NFL Player.
STILL TO SIGN: DT Shariff Floyd, CB Xavier Rhodes, WR Cordarrelle Patterson, P Jeff Locke, G Jeff Baca, ILB Michael Mauti, G Travis Bond and DT Everett Dawkins.
