Second-round pick Tyrell Johnson could sign with the Vikings as early as this morning says Chip Scoggins of the Star-Tribune. 5th round QB John David Booty and 6th round offensive lineman John Sullivan could also ink today. Sorry, but it’s hard to get that interested in these draftee signings when they’re not really name guys, and when the whole off-season has been full of exciting stories like the Jared Allen trade and the Brett Favre speculation. It’s all just formality now. Hopefully training camp will bring some big news, not of the injury or behind-the-scenes tension variety. Mainly, I want to hear that Tarvaris Jackson is developing chemistry with his receivers, that the defensive line is gelling and that Adrian Peterson is sitting on the sideline in a lawn chair sipping a cool beverage and listening to his iPod.
Update: Tyrell Johnson signed today as expected. Four years with a $1.5 million signing bonus.
