Vikings sign first-round pick WR Laquon Treadwell, get draft class under contract

By Andrew Krammer

MINNEAPOLIS — Twelve days after the draft, the Vikings wrapped up rookie contracts.

Receiver Laquon Treadwell, taken 23rd overall, inked a four-year rookie deal on Thursday, becoming the eighth and final Vikings draft pick to sign. All first-round picks have deals that come with a fifth-year team option. He’ll get a $5.4 million signing bonus on a contract worth $9.9 million based on the rookie wage scale. Treadwell’s maximum allowable cap hit for this season is $1,806,360.

Rookie contracts are continually fast signings under the 2011 collective bargaining agreement, though the Vikings take a quicker step than most.

Players may report to voluntary Organized Team Activities on May 24, in which 7-on-7 to 11-on-11 drills are permitted without contact.
