Vikings reach deal with third-rounder Josh Robinson

AP

We’ve entered the lightning round, with deals happening in a hurry as teams report to camp.

The Vikings have signed third-rounder Josh Robinson to a four-year deal this afternoon, PFT has learned.

They open camp tomorrow, and still have to sign first-round tackle Matt Kalil. How they handle that one will be interesting, considering they want to take a stand on offset language.

Robinson, a cornerback from Central Florida, was the 66th overall pick.

There are now 11 draft pick deals left to sign. We’ll count them down for you as we get them.

  1. How did offset language get agreed on in the CBA in the first place, it seems absurd.

    Why should any team have to pay a players salary if they cut him and he signs elsewhere? Or rather why would Kalil’s agent insist on such a thing?

    It’s really is not an issue specifically for Kalil because they drafted him because they believe he will solidify the position for a decade, but rather it is the precedent it would set to agree to this. I can’t say I blame the Vikings for not agreeing to the language.

  2. If players would just tell the agents to shut up every once and a while stuff like this wouldn’t be a problem. Khalil won’t be cut in 4 years. Worst case scenario he plays right tackle the last couple of years if he sucks.
