Fri Jul 19, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

And yeah, we certainly want to do that,” Eberflus said. “We’ll take that week-to-week. But there’s value in, really, all the reps when you think about it because he’s going to be going against the [No.] 1 defense. In preseason games, you don’t get all the looks, sometimes, that you would get during practice. ... So I think there’s equal value to going against the ones every single day and also getting some of those preseason reps as well.”

-- Vikings Waiting to Sign J.J. McCarthy --
Tue Jul 16, 2024 --from FFMastermind.com

NBC Sports reports a source with knowledge of the situation says that the Minnesota Vikings haven’t engaged much when it comes to negotiating the contract of first-round draft pick QB J.J. McCarthy. One possible explanation is that the Vikings want to see what happens with the QB Caleb Williams contract before finalizing things with McCarthy, the tenth overall pick. If the unverified social-media chatter that McCarthy wants his full signing bonus right away is accurate, that would make sense. If Williams doesn’t get his full signing bonus right away as the first overall selection, it’s easier to tell McCarthy that, at most, he’ll get the same payment schedule that Williams received. In addition to Williams and McCarthy, Bears WR Rome Odunze, Vikings DE Dallas Turner, and Bengals OT Amarius Sims are the other unsigned first-round picks. For all first-round picks, the four-year rookie deal is fully guaranteed.
