Although Edwards isn't happy with his situation and could end up leaving as a free agent after next season (depending on what happens with the CBA), there are no indications the Vikings are attempting to shop him.
While the weekend' minicamp was mandatory, Edwards could not be fined for missing because technically he was not under contract to the Vikings. That is no longer the case. If you're unfamiliar with Edwards' situation, here is a synopsis.
The Vikings also announced they have signed fifth-round pick Nate Triplett, a linebacker who played for the Gophers. Triplett is the second of the Vikings' eight picks from this year's draft to sign. The team previously had agreed to terms with seventh-round fullback Ryan D'Imperio.
Also Monday, the Vikings waived six undrafted free agents: center Eddie Adamski; offensive tackle Matt Hanson; running back James Johnson; wide receiver Aaron Rhea (injured); cornerback Angelo Williams; and offensive tackle Marlon Winn. All but Johnson were rookies.
On another note, we've heard that Vikings cornerback Chris Cook sat out the majority of the minicamp after he tweaked his hamstring. Coach Brad Childress said Sunday that Cook would be fine. The move probably was more precautionary than anything.
