    VIKINGS GETTING CLOSE WITH BERRIAN by Michael David Smith
    Free agent wide receiver Bernard Berrian is in Minnesota today negotiating with the Vikings, and a contract agreement could be finished before the day is out.
    Judd Zulgad of the Minneapolis Star Tribune reports that reporters gathered at the Vikings' press conference to introduce free agent signing Madieu Williams saw Berrian in the team's facility, and coach Brad Childress acknowledged that the team is talking to Berrian.
    Vikings executive Rick Spielman wouldn't say whether Berrian is planning to make a visit to Oakland, but Zulgad writes, "it would not be surprising to get wind of a Berrian news conference later this afternoon or Sunday morning."
    The Vikings are also reportedly interested in free agent wide receiver Javon Walker.

    BERRIAN TO VIKINGS DEAL GETS DONE by Michael David Smith
    The Minnesota Vikings have reached a contract agreement with free-agent wide receiver Bernard Berrian.
    Jay Glazer of Fox Sports reports that it's a six-year deal, with financial details not yet available. The Vikings have made no secret that they were going after Berrian, and Sean Jensen of the St. Paul Pioneer Press had previously reported that the Vikings would have Berrian locked up this afternoon.
    After Randy Moss, Berrian is generally considered the top wide receiver available this year as an unrestricted free agent.
    Glazer reports that with Berrian gone, the Bears will likely use Devin Hester more on offense.
