When Tuesday began, the Minnesota Vikings hadn't re-signed any of their free agents. By day's end, they had re-signed six.

Weakside linebacker Erin Henderson agreed to terms on a two-year deal with the Vikings on Tuesday night, two NFL sources said.

"It's a honor and a privilege to wear my horns," Henderson posted on Twitter. "Not quite ready to see that come to an end. Thanx for the love!!!"

Henderson, 26, has started 26 games over the past two seasons. He re-signed a one-year deal with the Vikings last year and this time got the multi-year deal he was seeking.

The Vikings previously agreed to terms with right tackle Phil Loadholt, fullback Jerome Felton, safety Jamarca Sanford, receiver Jerome Simpson and offensive lineman Joe Berger.

According to a source, there were no immediate plans to re-sign the four remaining players: linebackers Jasper Brinkley and Marvin Mitchell, receiver Devin Aromashodu and offensive lineman Geoff Schwartz.
