Running backs Caleb King and Jordan Todman received three-year contracts when the Minnesota Vikings promoted them to the 53-man roster last week. The seven players who finished the season on the practice squad received two-year futures deals on Monday.

That leaves 19 of the 70 players who finished the season with the Vikings unsigned for 2012. Sixteen of them, including nine who started at least three games this past season, can become unrestricted free agents when the signing period begins on March 13.
