Kellen Mond close to signing his rookie deal with Vikings


The Vikings are close to signing rookie quarterback Kellen Mond, Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press reports.

Mond will get a three-year, $5.223 million deal, including a signing bonus of $1.158 million, per Tomasson, and the third-round choice will count $949,712 against the 2021 salary cap.

The Vikings have signed seven of their 11 draft choices, with only third-rounders Mond, Chazz Surratt, Wyatt Davis and Patrick Jones remaining unsigned.

Mond threw for 2,282 yards with 19 touchdowns and three interceptions in 10 games for Texas A&M last season. During his career with the Aggies under Jimbo Fisher, Mond threw for 9,661 yards and 71 touchdowns.
