The Vikings agreed to terms with Johnson, a sixth-round draft pick, on Tuesday.||||||| Johnson caught 36 passes for 613 yards and seven touchdowns for Jackson State last season. He returned a punt for a touchdown as a senior as well and should get a look on special teams as a return man. Johnson signed a four-year contract for the rookie minimum salary, his agent, Angelo Wright, said. The move assures that he will be on time for training camp, which opens Friday.
