Wieneke Will Sign with Vikings
Former Maple Grove High School and South Dakota State University wide receiver Jake Wieneke will sign with the Vikings this week.
Wieneke wasn’t selected in the NFL draft, leaving him as a free agent able to sign with any team.
The Vikings contacted him late in the draft and told Wieneke that they would like to sign him if he wasn’t selected.
That put him in the unusual position of hoping that no team would select him in the final few picks.
Wieneke will report for a rookie mini-camp and sign a contract later this week.
