Really glad they've locked up some of the defensive core players.

I like this but my concern is they are focusing a lot on defense now and almost not at all on offense. They need to extend Bradford,or I fear all of this money they are spending is a huge waste. I think they are putting way too many eggs in the Teddy Bridgewater basket right now.

Eh, I think they have accepted that Teddy is a long shot to ever play again and they want to see more of Sam before locking him into a long term deal. I'm ok with it.

Linval Hungry, as Pete Bercich calls him, won't have to go hungry now.

I think they're trying to front load contracts so they can sign him.

These are actually money-saving moves (and pretty savvy by the Vikings IMO).

ESPN.com wrote:
For the first time in their history, the Vikings extended the contract of a player -- actually, two -- who had more than one year remaining before expiration. Most teams hold a hard line on the one-year mark, hoping to avoid a precedent that would prompt other players to line up for early re-negotiations.

In this scenario, however, the Vikings approached defensive end Everson Griffen and nose tackle Linval Joseph with early offers. Both players would have been under contract through the 2018 season, but both are under 30 and the Vikings knew their prices would only rise if they waited until next summer. In exchange for the premature deals, the Vikings received early cost certainty and a discount off what each player was likely to command next year.

Who outside of the QB is up for a contract?

The QB situation is a more complicated than it seems on the surface, at least in my opinion. Lots of unanswered questions regard TB and his future. Also lots of questions on Bradford. If they lock one of them up, they they are set on a path. The question is, which is the right path in the LONG term?

There is risk to them waiting to sign. But there is also risk to them hurrying to sign. I like that they are waiting.

Most free agents have some sort of replacement on the team already: McKinnon, Berger, Easton, Shariff Floyd, Sherels, Newman. They locked up the major ones they needed to.

While still under contract, it's likely Diggs and Hunter will need to be renegotiated.

Yes. He's on something similar to the PUP but for non-football related injuries. Forget the exact acronym.

Depends on the nerve regeneration. I'd say if we get anything this season it'd be considered a bonus at this point.
