Vikings sign 5th-round pick Adams, 7th-round choice Odenigbo

A fifth-round pick (170 overall) out of South Florida, Adams became the first member of the Vikings 11-player 2017 draft class to sign his pro contract.

While it is unclear exactly what language the NFLPA is disputing, the Vikings reportedly haven't changed anything in their rookie deals, which all eight picks signed by this time previous year.

Adams is the first of Minnesota's draft picks to sign his rookie deal.

Right now, it is hard to imagine Odenigbo seeing much playing time during his rookie season with the amount of talented pass rushers on the Vikings' current depth chart. He ranks second in school history in career receiving touchdowns, receiving yards and receptions.

Adams finished his USF career with 1,967 receiving yards and 16 touchdowns, tying his own single-season school record and racking up 822 yards as a senior. But the hope is he can also contribute as a receiver.

Adams and Odenigbo joined fellow Vikings draft picks at rookie minicamp at the beginning of the month and at organized team activities this week despite being without a contract. His 10 sacks in 2016 led the Big Ten.
