Vikings signed TE Daniel Hardy and G Jose Valdez to reserve/future contracts.

A seventh-round pick of the Bucs, Hardy was waived in September after making seven catches for 80 yards during the preseason. A two-year veteran out of Arkansas, the Falcons gave Valdez a look at left tackle during their preseason finale, but he's yet to make a regular season appearance.

Bucs signed No. 238 overall pick TE Daniel Hardy to a four-year contract.

The seventh-rounder earned all-Conference honors while posting a 32/545/1 line as a senior despite missing five games with a broken arm. A work in progress as a blocker, Hardy may spend his first season bulking up on the practice squad.

Buccaneers selected Idaho TE Daniel Hardy with the No. 238 overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft.

Hardy missed five games last fall thanks to a broken arm, but is considered a solid pass catcher that operates well in motion. He is an unaccomplished blocker, however, and will likely have to bulk up this summer if he's to earn a spot on the Bucs' 53-man roster.
