MANKATO, Minn. -- In the end, offset language wasn't enough to keep Matt Kalil from reporting on time to Minnesota Vikings training camp.
The team announced it has signed Kalil on Thursday, hours before the 4 p.m. deadline for players to report to camp.
According to NFL sources, the deal got done after the Vikings dropped their demand for offset language in the fourth year of the deal.
It's believed to be a fully guaranteed deal worth about $20 million over four years, with a fifth-year option.
