As expected, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson has signed his RFA tender. The Vikings gave Jackson an "original-round tender" worth $1.176 million.
Jackson and defensive end Ray Edwards were the Vikings remaining restricted free agents who had not signed their tenders. Edwards has said he won't sign his tender until he has to.
Jackson presumably will assume the No. 2 role again this season if, as expected, Brett Favre returns for his 20th NFL season.
