Vikings News Bulletin: Kalil Signs and Peterson Update

First off, Matt Kalil will be at training camp after signing his contract on Thursday.

According to NFL sources, the deal got done after the Vikings dropped their demand for offset language in the fourth year of the deal.

It’s believed to be a fully guaranteed deal worth about $20 million over four years, with a fifth-year option.

The Vikings managed to sign all 10 of their rookies.  Vikings players are expected to arrive in Mankato today by 4 p.m. CT.

1500ESPN is also reporting Adrian Peterson is excepted to open camp on the active/PUP list.

Players on active/PUP can be activated at any time. Once a player is activated, he’s ineligible for reserve/PUP, which sidelines him for at least six weeks.

The Vikings expect Peterson to be ready well before that, but it could be weeks before he participates in a practice. One possible target date is Aug. 12, the first day back to work after the Aug. 10 preseason opener at San Francisco.

The health of Adrian Peterson will remain a big story all throughout training camp.
