Three Vikings sign RFA tenders

Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings players, Ray Edwards, Tarvaris Jackson Updated: April 12, 2010 - 11:46 AM

Three of the Vikings restricted free agents have signed their tenders, according to this blog.

Defensive tackle Fred Evans, safety Eric Frampton and offensive lineman Ryan Cook have signed their RFA tenders. The three are among the group of veterans that reported for voluntary offseason workouts on Monday.

The Vikings still have three RFAs - defensive end Ray Edwards, quarterback Tarvaris Jackson and fullback Naufahu Tahi -- who have not signed their tenders.

Edwards told Judd this past weekend that he is still upset by the fact that he didn't become an unrestricted free agent because of the lack of a new CBA and will not sign his tender until he has to.

Thursday is the deadline for RFAs to sign an offer sheet with another team. If that doesn't happen, the RFA's rights belong to their current team.
