Agent Alvin Keels didn't give the Star Tribune any financial details, but said the contract is expected to be signed Tuesday.
Calls to Vikings vice president of football operations Rob Brzezinski and to Keels were not immediately returned to The Associated Press.
Keels told the newspaper that Robinson, the former Seattle Seahawks first-round draft pick, won't play in Sunday's regular-season opener against Tampa Bay. Keels said Robinson should be ready when the Vikings travel to Cincinnati the following week.
Robinson's best season came in 2002, when he caught 78 passes for 1,240 yards.
The Seahawks released Robinson, 25, in June after he was charged with drunken driving, the latest in a series of off-field problems for the ninth overall pick in the 2001 draft. Robinson pleaded guilty July 18 and was sentenced to one day in jail with 364 days suspended, but the case was reopened when officers smelled alcohol on his breath when he arrived to serve his day in jail.
Robinson checked himself into a 28-day alcohol rehabilitation program last month.
