Minnesota Vikings Sign Rhett Ellison To Four-Year Contract

On Tuesday, the Minnesota Vikings signed fourth-round selection Rhett Ellison to a four-year contract. Ellison is now the seventh member of the team's 2012 draft class to come to terms with the club, leaving just three players left to sign. Ellison was one of three players selected in the fourth-round of last month's draft, all of which are now under contract with the club.

Ellison split time at fullback and tight end while attending USC, which is what many project he will have to do with the Vikings.

With Ellison under contract, the Vikings' attention will now turn to their top three picks. Deals have not yet been worked out for USC tackle Matt Kalil, Notre Dame safety Harrison Smith, and Central Florida cornerback Josh Robinson.
