Vikings sign three draft picks

The SportsXchange

The Minnesota Vikings announced that they've agreed to deals with fourth-round pick Gerald Hodges seventh-round picks Michael Mauti and Everett Dawkins.

Terms of the deal weren't announced, but a person with knowledge of the deal told the St. Paul Pioneer Press that the four-year contract was worth about $2.5 million.

Hodges, who began his career at Penn State as a safety, could enter camp in a competition for the starting weak-side linebacker slot, especially if the Vikings move Erin Henderson to middle linebacker instead of signing a veteran.
