Johnson and Evans agreed to terms last week, but their contracts were finalized Wednesday. The Vikings started with 15 unrestricted free agents; running back Toby Gerhart and cornerback Chris Cook signed with other clubs.
Johnson will start his ninth year in the NFL, the fourth with the Vikings. He's been a starter the whole time, including at left tackle his first season. He got a two-year deal.
Evans, entering his eighth NFL season, agreed to a one-year contract. He joined the Vikings in 2007, starting six of 94 games since then. Evans finished last season with the sixth-longest tenure on the team.
