We mentioned yesterday that the Vikings haven’t confirmed any restricted free agent (RFA) tender information, and likely won’t do so until the deadline tonight at 10:59 CT, but that won’t stop external sources from revealing the information.
Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune is reporting that the Vikings have tendered DT Fred Evans at the 2nd round level and QB Tarvaris Jackson at the 3rd round level (explanation of the 3rd round tender here). This means that the Vikings have extended qualifying offers to both players and that if either player signs with another team the Vikings will have the right of first refusal and they would receive draft pick compensation.
We’ll continue to pass along information when appropriate, but remember that this information is only being reported and has not been confirmed by the club.
