The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to terms with their 2023 first round draft pick, wide receiver Jordan Addison.

Another step toward the 2023 NFL season was taken on Wednesday when the Minnesota Vikings signed their first-round draft pick, former USC wide receiver Jordan Addison who was the No. 23 overall selection in the 2023 NFL Draft.

Addison is expected to join Justin Jefferson as the team's starting receivers, with the rookie taking the place of veteran pass-catcher Adam Thielen, who will play the 2023 season with the Carolina Panthers.

The Vikings continue to make the necessary moves toward being ready for the upcoming season despite hurdles of salary cap issues and a few interesting personnel problems that need to be dealt with.

What does Jordan Addison's contract mean for the Minnesota Vikings?

As with modern era first round picks' contracts, it is expected that this is a four-year deal with an option for a fifth year to be added on, making Addison a young player to watch in an exciting Minnesota offense.
