The Vikings on Monday started the process of signing players on the practice squad to futures contracts.
Sources said among those who have signed so far are tight end Nick Muse, outside linebacker Benton Whitley, wide receiver Trishton Jackson and center Josh Sokol.
Muse spent time during the 2022 season on the 53-man roster. Overall, Muse, a seventh-round pick in 2022 out of South Carolina, got into 10 games as a rookie, playing only on special teams. Whitley also spent time on the 53-man roster in 2022, but he didn’t get into any games.
Minnesota’s season ended with a 31-24 loss Sunday to the New York Giants in a wild-card playoff game at U.S. Bank Stadium.
