Posted by: under Vikings, Vikings off the field Updated: July 26, 2010 - 5:20 PM

The Vikings agreed to terms Monday with seventh-round tight end Mickey Shuler Jr.,according to the National Football Post.

The NFP reports that the contract includes a signing bonus of roughly $63,000 as well as the standard base salaries of $320,000, $405,000, $490,000 and $575,000 and a fourth-year escalator clause that can significantly boost the maximum value of the deal.

The Vikings already have signed fifth-round linebacker Nate Triplett and and seventh-round fullback Ryan D'Imperio.

The team has yet to sign its two highest-picks, second-rounders Chris Cook, a cornerback, and Toby Gerhart, a fullback. Also unsigned are fourth-round defensive end Everson Griffen; fifth-round offensive lineman Chris DeGeare; and sixth-round quarterback Joe Webb.

The Vikings will open training camp on Friday in Mankato.
