Vikings Give Kendricks Five-Year Extension

BC-FBN-Vikings-Kendricks, 132Vikings sign LB Eric Kendricks to contract extensionAP Photo NY173Eds: APNewsNow. Much of that has come in the way from the stout defense that the front office has constructed. He is set to make $1.14 million in base salary for the final season of his rookie deal.

Another piece of the Vikings' dominant defense is locked in for the long haul.

Still, the crowd sizes were noticeably smaller on Monday. "To bring in quality educators, we need the funding". That wave has notably seen teachers in West Virginia get a 5% pay raise last month after a nine-day strike.

In his first three seasons since entering the NFL, Kendricks has led the team in total tackles, the first Viking to do so since Rip Hawkins (1961-1964). According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Kendricks is signing a five-year, $50 million extension with the Vikings.

Kendricks, 26, had 136 total tackles, six passes defensed, a sack, an interception and a touchdown in 16 starts last season for the Vikings. He started all 16 games at middle linebacker for the first time in his career in 2017, a year after he played 15 of the team's 16 games and made 109 tackles to go with a 77-yard interception return for a touchdown. Like Kendricks, Barr has become a huge part of their defensive identity and figures to be a key piece to their long-term outlook. The two are part of a defense that was ranked No. 1 in the National Football League last season.
