Less than $20 million AAV for a 26 year old pass rusher? I'm actually surprised. That's a solid deal for the Vikes.

Injuries probably brought that value low - he's hurt a lot. Talented guy, disruptive end. But will get nicked up every year.

Like Marcus Davenport hurt (minor injury that sidelines him all season), or Xavier Rhodes hurt (minor injury that happens every game but he only misses a few plays or a drive at most)?

Closer to Davenport - he'll miss several games at a time, getting 15 games in a season would be a good return for him. Expect him to miss 2-3 games a year with a sprain or some sort in a good year.

To his credit, they're usually notable injuries. He's not missing much time with minor bumps, it's usually something he'd further injure if he tried to play through it.

Ah, that would make sense as the missing piece. Didn't know about his injury history.
