Vikings rookie defensive end Scott Crichton, a third-round pick out of Oregon State, is the latest member of the team's draft class to sign a rookie contract.

Wednesday evening, Crichton tweeted this photo of himself signing his contract. The Vikings confirmed that the signing was official Thursday morning.

Now that Crichton has a deal, only one member of the team's 10-player draft class is unsigned: running back Jerick McKinnon, who was also drafted in the third round.

Crichton had 22.5 career sacks in three seasons at Oregon State. He also recorded 164 tackles and forced four fumbles. He declared for the draft early so his parents could retire ASAP.
