The greatest name on this list is former Washington quarterback Jake Browning. According to Tom Pelissero of the NFL Network, Browning received $140K assured on his contract from the Vikings. For reference, Sean Mannion has $90K in guarantees in his 1-year deal. It’ll be exciting to see how Browning fares throughout OTAs and instruction camp.
It was initially reported that Stefon’s brother, Mar’Sean Diggs, would be signed as an undrafted totally free agent. Turns out the Vikings will have to be saving that spot for a person else’s brother since he was brought in as a minicamp tryout invite. The rookie minicamp will take location later this week (Friday-Sunday). You can see a list of players who are reportedly invited to the camp right here.
1 would speculate the final remaining roster spot would be employed on a kicker to compete with Dan Bailey, but who are we kidding? It’ll likely be a cornerback.
