Former Cal Poly wide receiver Dominique Johnson said he is signing an undrafted free agent contract with the Minnesota Vikings of the NFL.
The 6-foot-4, 220-pound former UCLA transfer said he is traveling to Minnesota today to finalize the deal.
Johnson, who was a senior during the 2010 season, went undrafted during the seven rounds of the NFL Draft in April, and because of the league's labor unrest was unable to sign with a team until the players and owners ratified a new collective bargaining early this week.
Never miss a local story.
Johnson led the Mustangs in receiving each of the past two seasons.
He caught 43 passes for 741 yards and six touchdowns in 2009, highlighted by a 13-catch, 273-yard game against South Dakota where he scored a school-record five receiving touchdowns. This past season, Johnson totaled 47 catches for 634 yards and four touchdowns.
