    EDEN PRAIRIE, Minn. — The Minnesota Vikings have signed draft pick Jerick McKinnon to a contract.
    The Vikings signed McKinnon, a third-round running back from Georgia Southern, on Tuesday. He was the last player unsigned from the Vikings' 2014 class.
    McKinnon started 31 of his 47 games at college, lining up at quarterback, wide receiver, running back and cornerback.
    He rushed for more than 100 yards in 17 games, finishing his career at Georgia Southern with 3,899 yards rushing and 42 touchdowns rushing.
    McKinnon comes from the triple-option offense of former Eagles coach Jeff Monken, who is now the coach at Army.
    In McKinnon's final game at Georgia Southern, he ran for 125 yards on nine carries and scored the game-winning touchdown.
    Another former GSU player, cornerback Lavelle Westbrooks, signed with the Cincinnati Bengals on May 23.
    Westbrooks, a seventh-round pick, joined fellow Cincinnati draftees quarterback A.J. McCarron (fifth round), linebacker Marquis Flowers (sixth round), receiver James Wright (seventh round).
    Two other former Eagles, J.J. Wilcox (Dallas) and Darius Eubanks (Cleveland) are also currently on NFL rosters.
