Vikings announce that first round pick, QB Teddy Bridgewater signed his rookie contract.
Just like with first-round pick Anthony Barr, the Vikings have yet to release the details of the contract. Obviously it is of the four-year rookie length, but the amount per year has not been stated. Bridgewater was the No. 32 pick of the first round.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Rays designated P Grant Balfour for assignment.
There's no word as to why Balfour was DFA'd here as he's pitched pretty well so far, especially for a guy who had to leave the team during spring training to help take care of his ailing father. He did hit a bump in the road Saturday when he allowed three earned runs in two-thirds of an inning, but before that, he had made five appearances, pitched 3 2/3 innings and allowed two hits with no runs. The Rays will likely give some reason for the move, but look for Balfour to pick up with another team fairly quickly. Analysis: Howard Bender
