Vikings Sign 1st-Rounder Harrison Smith To Contract

Posted by Mike Wobschall on June 1, 2012 – 9:36 am

There are no more Organized Team Activities (OTAs) scheduled for this week, but that doesn’t mean work isn’t being done. In fact, an important order of business was addressed on Friday.

The Vikings and 1st-round S Harrison Smith agreed to (and signed) a contract. Smith is the eighth Vikings draft pick to sign his rookie contract. Check out Smith on the May 22nd Wobcast by clicking here.

LT Matt Kalil and CB Josh Robinson are the only unsigned draft picks remaining.

    That happened on Friday? Reporters these days must have ESP because all the other websites were saying on Thursday that it had already occurred…

    The vikes still need to trade for or pick up a veteran FS to help smith in the backfield or just make winfield, with his great instincts, the fs for next 3-4 years

    Agree with spencer the d has to earn a name. But it’s fun to think of stupid names. So far I like, Olin’s ministers of destruction, the violet vajhammers, the four norsemen…, cook and the stranglers, Jared’s jihad, frasiers lasers……what you guys got?

    Spencer, are you playing warcraft again?

    If the defense is bad they could be cook and the chokers.

    Titus- For the last time Titus I dont play Warcraft hahaha

    Spencer, sorry, but I just have this image of you playing that game.

    Hows Chris Carr and Zackary Bowman doing Wobbs? Haven’t heard a lick about either of the two since they were signed..

  15. By Spencer on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Kluwe plays that game though.

  16. By iaVIKE on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Kluwe’s a funny dude, and a great punter. I hope he retires a Viking. What’s the name of his band again?

  17. By hotcarlgiver on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    I imagine robinson and kalil will be signed shortly. surely spielman wont let them slip away. He cant be that much of a f@cktard.

  18. By Titus Flavius Caesar Vespasianus Augustus on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Regarding Kalil – I don’t understand how a team signs a third pick and has not signed him yet– is that normal for NFL business?

  19. By hotcarlgiver on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Honestly i dont know titus. and regarding a name for the d, if were winning then the best name is the one we have already, the one and only minnesota vikings. skoool!

    If the o-line can plow this season the way they should, ponder will be able to play to his potential…i think having 2 goot TE’s will allow us to play good ball control offense…and not resigning ej henderson is a mistake…brinkley does not have the presence that ej has

    Yah…Obama trying to get votes by talking about football sports and all the things he shouldnt worry about. Stick to politics you tool.

    iaVIKE – Kluwe’s band name is Tripping Icarus.

    The D’s name should be based off of Norse mythology.

    Titus- seems like you are always telling me to relax…….I guess at some point I should take your advice……

    Kalil is holding out for best deal$$$$

  27. By Rocksalt on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    we are in a rebuild..so 8-8 will be very respectable

  28. By puckertrucker on Jun 1, 2012 | Reply

    Actually It is a Norse Nickname for the Viking Defense if they Play up to expectations.I really Like ODINS MINISTERS OF DESTRUCTION. How about you titus, or Fredrick? The One and Only PuckerTrucker!!!!Skol Fans

    How about the defense foremrly known as the PPE?

  30. By celticvikingwarrior on Jun 2, 2012 | Reply

    If you remember all the best defenses and their nicknames were ALL two or three word’s only…….
    The ” PurplePeopleEater’s”
    The “FearsomeFoursom”
    The “Doomsday Defense”
    The “Steel Curtain”
    The “Orange Crush”

    The best I’ve seen so far are “Norse Force”—–”Purple Reign”—-”Purple Daze”…….But like has been said, they have to earn it first, and that may take another great draft.

    The DLine needs a new Fat Pat before it can be dominate again.

    the four norsemen.

  34. By TheRealDon on Jun 2, 2012 | Reply

    I think the D’s name should be “Unknown” or “ScoreOnMe” I’m sorry guys but they need to prove me wrong first.

    Mjolnir is the name of Thor’s Hammer so there’s a Viking starter name for you

  36. By Rogerthevikefan on Jun 3, 2012 | Reply

    Kalil was a great draft pick and fixed the LT spot but there is an even larger hole on the right side. Loadholt needs replaced. Now that Love has a full offseason to workout and get better technice I fully expect him to replace Loadsofholds as the Starter.

    First the Defense has to be a real Defense before it can be named. Ours is still too porous to be given an honor like that.

    Derrick…. didn’t our last president show his face around MLB constantly? Ah well, I guess people that hate other people will find something to b!tch about.

    @Rocksalt… I would be very happy with an 8-8 season. I would like to see a MUCH improved DB effort, and would even settle for an offensive performance similar to last season. If the defense can avoid giving up the big plays, our offense should be able to score enough to win 50% of the games.

    @celticvikingwarrior… +1 for “Purple Reign”. I like it. The name works, and the “title” pays tribute to a long-time Vikings supporter!
