  1. All abouts the wideouts

    Plus Diggs doesn't have the negotiation power that Cooks had. Diggs still making "small" money.
  2. All abouts the wideouts

    Brandin Cooks got an extension ... should be interesting what the numbers looks like.
  3. Saints @ Vikings Steelers @ Jaguars

    It looks like Barr was offered a valued type contract with Vikings, and Barr camp said no at that time. So the Vikings camp, placed those negotiations on hold for a later time when more is known about a) how well is Richardson playing (and potentially he might then become more of a priority) b) Did we (already) get Diggs to sign a value contract or fair market contract

    If Barr is not giving us a value deal right now ... I delay negotiations with Barr till late (time on our side). By mid-season if we like how Richardson is doing, I'd prioritize him more over Barr - partly due to positional impact, as long as Richardson contract demands are reasonable. Right now Waynes is at the bottom of my list for retaining, since we have a potential option (Hughes).

    I wouldn't put Waynes ahead of Barr yet. But I'd put Richardson ahead of Barr

    We have more leverage with Diggs right now compared to Barr. So you roll with the leverage. If Barr wasn't giving us a value signing within the early part of negotiations, we need to wait to ink Diggs first to see what we theoretically might have remaining for Barr, then prioritization between Barr or waiting to see how Richardson fits etc.
  8. Who's breaking OUT this year?

  9. Vikings extend Danielle Hunter

    Clowney will get more, Hunter was making "peanuts" since he was a late 3rd rounder. If I remember correctly O_0 was the target and once NYG drafted him, Minny traded down twice, and land Hunter for DE. Great deal. Gonna explode next to Richardson this year.
  10. There is enough money for everyone. I agree that Diggs is more important to this team than Barr, however retaining them in different orders, is about retaining more cap space, and the team taking advantage of leverage when they have it. But Hunter was the more important piece of all them and we had the big leverage over Hunter so we used it.
  11. I think Barr is next as well.
  12. We just extended the coming DPOY, else we'd have need to franchise him.
  13. That looks pretty solid... as an initial pricing. $14M over 5 years, maybe 3-4 years guaranteed. Would have cost us a lot more, had we delayed. We had the leverage, and we used it. Was predicting Hunter would be the 1st of the remaining extensions
  14. Ian Rapoport‏Verified account @RapSheet 6m6 minutes ago The #Vikings agreed to terms with DE Danielle Hunter on a 5-year, $72M extension, source said. $40M in guarantees. He gets a $15M signing bonus .Big-time money for a budding talent
