After the draft, teams scramble to pick up the top players that weren’t chosen.  These players are called undrafted free agents (or UDFA for short).  With this being one of the deepest drafts in many years, there is a lot of talent left unclaimed and the Vikings want a piece of that action.

Here are some undrafted free agents the Minnesota Vikings have been invited to training camp or offered contracts since the end of the draft:

    With many more players that are going to be signing soon, expect Minnesota to be active in getting high quality players to bring into training camp to compete for spots on the roster.  Also, expect some player cuts soon to make room on the roster for these players to come in and compete.
