Vikings sign WR Isaac Fruechte, six others to reserve contracts

By Andrew Krammer

EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Vikings committed to seven players for next season.

Receiver Isaac Fruechte and six others inked reserve/future contracts on Monday morning, the team announced. Fruechte, a University of Minnesota product, spent the entire 2015 season on the Vikings’ practice squad after going undrafted last spring. All seven players were on the practice squad when their season ended with Sunday’s 10-9 playoff loss to the Seattle Seahawks.

Also signed were guard Isame Faciane, linebacker Terrance Plummer, fullback Blake Renaud, linebacker Alex Singleton, defensive tackle Toby Johnson and safety John Lowdermilk.

Players that sign reserve/future contracts are added to their team’s active roster on the first day of the new league year, which falls on March 15 for the 2016 season. Only players who were not on any team’s active roster at the end of the season are eligible for a reserve/future contract.

Offensive lineman David Yankey, a 2014 fifth-round pick, was one of three practice squad players not immediately signed to a reserve/future deal, along with tight end Dominique Jones and running back Dominique Williams.
