Vikings break ice on draft pick signings

GREEN BAY, Wis. -- A quick note before I head out to Green Bay's first minicamp practice.

Via Twitter, Judd Zulgad of the Star Tribune reports the Vikings have agreed to terms with seventh-round draft pick Jamarca Sanford, a safety from Mississippi. Sanford is the Vikings' first draft choice to agree on a contract.

So for those of you keeping count, and I'm continually surprised by how many are, here are the updated signings for the NFC North 2009 draft class:

Chicago: All nine signed
Detroit: One of 10 signed (Quarterback Matthew Stafford)
Green Bay: Three of eight signed (Defensive end Jarius Wynn, cornerback Brandon Underwood, linebacker Brad Jones)
Minnesota: One of five signed (Sanford)
