"It's all done," Crichton wrote via Twitter before the Vikings confirmed the deal Thursday morning. "Ready for the next chapter of my life."

Crichton left Corvallis after three years to help support his parents. His father is a warehouse worker who lost a leg for "medical reasons" according to Crichton.
