The Vikings signed seven players to reserve/future contracts now that their season has ended.

Among them include OG Chris DeGeare, who started five games as a rookie in 2010 after Steve Hutchinson went down, but DeGeare was cut in training camp this season.

It also included for third-round pick of the Patriots, LB Tyrone McKenzie, and Reggie Jones, a first-year DB out of Portland State.

The remaining four were rookies this season: WR Kris Adams, OG Butch Lewis, WR Kerry Taylor and TE Allen Reisner. In six games with the Vikings, Reisner caught one pass for five yards as the third tight end.
