Matt Kalil signs Minnesota Vikings contract

And then there were six. That's the number of rookies without a contract following news that Vikings left tackle Matt Kalil has agreed to terms on a contract, a source close to the siutation told NFL.com and NFL Network reporter Ian Rapoport.

The St. Paul Pioneer Press was the first to report the sides had agreed on a contract.

It's uncertain how Kalil, the No. 4 overall pick, and the Vikings settled their disagreement about the "offset" language issue in Kalil's contract that the two sides were divided over.

Of the six remaining players, four are first round picks. Jaguars wideout Justin Blackmon (No. 5) and Dolphins quarterback Ryan Tannehill (No. 8) are the two highest picks remaining without a contract.

We'd be stunned if Blackmon or Tannehill aren't signed by the end of the weekend, although Blackmon's contract is a little trickier than most because of his DUI arrest this offseason.
