The Vikings are about to begin training camp, yet all three of their first-round draft picks had yet to sign a contract.  They were the only unsigned players on the team, but that changed today.

StarTribune.com is reporting that Sharrif Floyd, the 23rd overall pick in the draft; Xavier Rhodes, No. 25 overall; and Cordarrelle Patterson (29th) all signed and are headed to Mankato this afternoon. The Vikings players report between noon and 4 p.m.

The Vikings announced the signings, and tweeted a picture of team VP Rob Brzezinski signing the trio.

Believe it or not, NFL Football is fast approaching!
