Bernard Berrian is meeting with the Vikings tonight and if everything goes according to Zygi Wilf’s plan Berrian will be wearing a Vikings cap at a news conference tomorrow. That’s if everything goes according to plan. If that does not happen, Berrian likely will head to Oakland to meet with the Raiders. The Vikings certainly don’t want that to happen.
Meanwhile as Vikings execs try to impress Berrian, the plan remains for Bengals defensive end Justin Smith to visit on Saturday. Smith is supposed to board a plane sometime this evening and head for Minnesota after visiting with the 49ers today.
Although he was not introduced at today’s news conference, the contract with safety Madieu Williams has been signed and the deal is done.
Update: We are hearing that Thomas Tapeh’s deal is worth $6 million over five years with just over $1 million in guaranteed cash.
Upate II: The Vikings have officially announced Williams has agreed to terms. He will be introduced at a news conference Saturday.
