Trae Waynes signs four-year contract with Vikings

Star Tribune Sports - Thu, 05/07/2015 - 14:10
The Vikings have signed their first player from this year’s draft class, and it just so happens to be the first player they selected. Cornerback Trae Waynes, the 11th overall selection last weekend, has signed a four-year contract with the Vikings, a league source confirmed. Per the CBA, the rookie deal will include a fifth-year option for the team. The 22-year-old is the fourth 2015 first-round pick to sign. Terms of the deal are not yet known, but Titans offensive tackle Taylor Lewan, the 11th overall pick last year, signed a four-year deal worth about $11.5 million with a signing bonus of nearly $6.7 million. With the team’s rookie minicamp taking place this weekend, you can expect more members of their 10-player draft class to sign deals. You’re probably pretty familiar with Waynes by now. But if not, check out my feature on the cornerback from a few days ago. KSTP first reported that Waynes had signed with the Vikings.

Vikings release running back Henry Josey

Star Tribune Sports - Thu, 05/07/2015 - 12:15
The Vikings have released running back Henry Josey, according to his agent, Andy Ross. The Vikings signed Josey off the Jaguars’ practice squad before the 2014 season finale. He did not suit up for that game, though. Josey started his rookie season with the Eagles and finished second in the NFL in preseason rushing with 225 yards on 34 carries. He has yet to carry the ball in a regular-season game. The Vikings will now have six running backs on their roster, including Adrian Peterson. With their rookie minicamp taking place this weekend and a bunch of guys in for tryouts, the Vikings could make more cuts in the coming days to accommodate other rookie free agents they wish to sign.
