The Vikings have started signing their draft picks.
Second-round tight end Kyle Rudolph tweeted that he has signed with the Vikings.
He is the first pick known to have signed with the team. Quarterback Christian Ponder has yet to sign but there is only so much money to go around to draft picks under the new collective bargaining agreement.
Also, Vikings linebacker and restricted free-agent Erin Henderson tweeted that he has signed his tender. The Vikings other RFA, safety Husain Abdullah, also signed his second-rounder tender. He will make $1.835 million this season.
