Vikings LB Kendricks lands reported $50 million extension

16 April 2018

Several of the Vikings' top talent on that side of the ball had been acquired via the draft.

The team announced it signed Eric Kendricks to a contract extension, locking up the first of four significant players scheduled to hit free agency after the 2018 season.

ESPN reported the deal is worth $50 million over five years, with $25 million guaranteed.

Kendricks, the Vikings' second-round pick in 2015, posted 113 combined tackles last season, with a sack and one interception (which he returned 31 yards for a touchdown).

The former UCLA linebacker is signing an extension with the Minnesota Vikings. He's led the team in tackling every year since being drafted.

One of the most important pieces from the Minnesota Vikings' league-best scoring and yardage defense is sticking around long term.

Minnesota has constructed a roster that could see them be in the case once again to compete for a possible trip to the Super Bowl with balance on both sides of the ball. The two are part of a defense that was ranked No. 1 in the National Football League last season.
