Former UCLA LB Eric Kendricks signs five-year, $50M extension with Vikings

Much of that has come in the way from the stout defense that the front office has constructed.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks, who has been Minnesota's leading tackler for the past three seasons, signed a five-year contract extension worth $50 million, the team announced Monday.

Per multiple reports, the new deal for Kendricks is for five years and $50 million, with $25 million of that sum guaranteed. It is a significant uptick in pay as he has quickly proven to be a vital part of the Vikings' defense as a core piece of the linebacker core.

Kendricks has recorded 314 tackles over his first three National Football League seasons, including a career-best 113 in 2017. He's led the team in tackling every year since being drafted.

Another piece of the Vikings' dominant defense is locked in for the long haul. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs, linebacker Anthony Barr and defensive end Danielle Hunter are scheduled to become free agents after the season and may also be in line for extensions before the regular season begins. The two are part of a defense that was ranked No. 1 in the National Football League last season.
