Matt Kalil, the highest draft pick who hadn’t yet signed his contract, got his deal done this morning.
The Vikings, who selected Kalil with the fourth overall pick in April, signed the offensive tackle today, as first reported by Jeremy Fowler of the Pioneer Press.
The deal apparently had been held up by the Vikings’ insistence on offset language that would allow the team to recoup some of his guarantee in the unlikely event that he becomes a bust and is cut before his contract gets done.
As it turned out, PFT has confirmed that the Vikings gave in and there was no offset language. The deal will be a four-year contract worth $19,770,598. The deal is fully guaranteed and includes a signing bonus of $12,818,620.
