Safety Anthony Harris signed his tender with the Vikings on Monday, the team announced.

The Vikings made several other moves official, too, confirming offensive tackle Rashod Hill signed his tender and the free agent signings of quarterback Sean Mannion and receiver Jordan Taylor.

Harris enters his fifth NFL season.

He set career highs in starts (nine), interceptions (three) and tackles (46) last season.

Harris, a restricted free agent, entered the league as an undrafted free agent in 2015. He has appeared in 51 games with 17 starts for the Vikings since.

  1. only mike zimmer can take all these undrafted defensive backs and turn them into excellent starters. the depth the vikings have at corner and safety is unheard of.

  2. I’m excited about this one. He’s an up and comer. Maybe not a star, but the kind a solid player you need on your team. I’m wondering what’s going on with Tom Johnson. That guys been counted out over and over in his career and he just keeps coming through when you need him.

  3. Do the Vikings still have the guy who can’t beat a team with a winning record at the helm? If so, what difference does this or any other signing make?

  4. Anybody else notice that when this kid stepped in at safety our secondary went from top 15 to top 5 in a few games? Sendejo was good, this kid is better.

  5. I liked Sendejo, but in today’s touch football he was just a 15 yard penalty waiting to happen when the team couldn’t afford it, kinda like Griffen jumping off sides. Harris has made plays when he got in there, let’s hope he can continue that for 16 games.

  6. Good complement to Smith, better in coverage and less injury-prone than Sendejo, and plays smart. Vikes have done pretty well with undrafted free agents.

  7. Top Defense This Year #1 mark it down and remember sit your Fantasy QB against the Vikings!

    You sound like a Packers fan. If so, 3rd place is reserved for you. You’ve only beaten the Vikings once in the last 6 tries or so.

    Great move by the Vikes today.
    It’s great locking up and retaining all of our medium talent.
    Look Out, 3rd Place, Here We Come!!!

    Don’t worry third place is still there for the packers to stay. Keep in mind they added nothing of consequence this off-season, just a couple average Joes so if everything is status quo, I think your spot in third place is safe…. Although the Lions whipped you twice last year so they may push the pack to fourth.

  10. Good player. Glad he is signed. Zim may have coached him up over the yrs but wish he could coach up more then a couple players in d backfield thats not a 1st or 2nd rounder. Please stop with all the Zim coaches up “all these undrafted/late draft pick players”. We need oline help for once in the draft!!!

    It doesn’t take a lot of money to pay for a garbage roster BUT evidentially they still have to pay extra bonus money just to get that garbage roster to set foot in Green Bay
    Zzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzzz

    I wonder why both Thielen and Barr have significant workout bonuses included in their recent contracts? The Vikings don’t historically do that, and I was under the impression all Vikings would show up out of gratitude and privilege alone. My guess is the Vikings are doing it…….because they heard the Packers were doing it.
    =====================================================

    Please start calling out redundantperformance on his ridiculous lies.

    Both Barr and AT only have 100k workout bonuses included in their contracts.

    There 13……THIRTEEN packers that have more( including their 4 FA signings) ranging anywhere from 750k down 125k.

    When the truth doesn’t fit your argument, make something up, it is the Packer fan way after all.
