Vikings Sign WR Dillon Mitchell To Futures Deal


The Minnesota Vikings announced Monday that they’ve signed WR Dillon Mitchell to a reserve/future contract for the upcoming season.

Mitchell becomes the ninth player to be signed to a futures deal by the Vikings. The full list of players signed includes:

  1. QB Jake Browning
  2. TE Brandon Dillon
  3. CB Mark Fields
  4. WR Davion Davis
  5. RB Tony Brooks-James
  6. DB Kemon Hall
  7. CB Marcus Sayles
  8. DE Stacy Keely
  9. WR Dillon Mitchell

Futures deals are essentially camp invites that will give players the opportunity to compete for roster spots during offseason workouts and training camp.

Mitchell, 22, is a former seventh-round pick of the Vikings back in 2019. He agreed to a four-year, $2.6 million contract with Minnesota, but he was waived coming out of the preseason.

The Vikings did, however, re-sign Mitchell to their practice squad after clearing waivers.

During this three-year college career at Oregon, Mitchel caught 119 passes for 1,710 yards receiving and 14 touchdowns over the course of 29 games.
