Oh, Mickey, You're So Signed; Vikings Ink Seventh-Round Tight End

The Minnesota Vikings have signed the third of their eight picks from the 2010 NFL Draft.

Tom Pelissero of 1500 ESPN in Minneapolis is reporting that the Vikings have come to terms with Mickey Shuler, Jr.  Shuler, a tight end from Penn State University, was drafted by the Vikings in the seventh round of this year's selection meeting.  His father. . .also, curiously, named Mickey Shuler. . .played tight end in the NFL for a decade.

Shuler's deal is reportedly worth about $1.85 million, and has a signing bonus of approximately $60,000.

Having signed fifth-round linebacker Nate Triplett and seventh-round fullback Ryan D'Imperio earlier this off-season, the Vikings still have five picks they need to ink before camp starts on Friday.  Those players are second-rounders Chris Cook and Toby Gerhart, fourth-rounder Everson Griffen, fifth-rounder Chris DeGeare, and sixth-rounder Joe Webb.

Keep in right here for any signings the Vikings might make in the next couple of days.
