Rebilas-USA TODAY SportsIn a move that surprised almost no one, the Minnesota Vikings have declined to pick up the option on S Andrew Sendejo, per Ian Rapoport:That will free up $5.5 million in much needed cap room for the Vikings, and with this move they are about $10-11 million under the cap, depending on what website you believe. As we head towards the beginning of the ‘legal tampering’ period From China Cameron Smith Jersey , which begins later this afternoon, that number will most likely increase as more player contracts are re-structured, or players are released.For the Vikings, this means that will almost certainly tender restricted free agent Anthony Harris and keep him in the fold. Harris played exceptionally well in place of the injured Sendejo last year, making this move a no-brainer. And even though the Vikings released him Long Sleeve Cameron Smith Jersey , they could still finagle a compensatory draft pick next year:That is still to be determined, though, but let’s hope Sendejo signs elsewhaere and the Vikings get something for him.

While some have been quick to label new Minnesota Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins a bust. . .because durrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr, I guess. . .most of us have come to the realization that he’s done a pretty darn good job for the Vikings thus far this season Stefon Diggs Jersey , particularly in light of how the other potential options they had to look at this offseason have fared. The folks from Pro Football Focus apparently lean more towards the correct opinion based on their latest list of NFL quarterbacks.Through the first nine weeks of the season, PFF has Cousins coming in at #8 on their list of quarterbacks. Given that there are only 32 starting quarterback jobs in the NFL, #8 would seem to be a pretty solid ranking.PFF has Cousins at #8 in accuracy percentage and #10 in “clean pocket grade.” Given how infrequently Cousins actually has a clean pocket to work with, I’m a little surprised that number isn’t higher. However, he’s done a solid enough job under pressure Harrison Smith Jersey , apparently, to elevate himself into that #8 spot.By comparison, Case Keenum is down at #25 on this list, and Sam Bradford. . .well, he’s not even on it. Nor is Teddy Bridgewater or A.J. McCarron or most of the other options that the Vikings could have potentially brought in this offseason. The man that replaced Cousins in Washington Adam Thielen Jersey , Alex Smith, is just ahead of Keenum at #24.Not that we need it, necessarily, but there’s another bit of confirmation that the Vikings and Rick Spielman did the right thing at quarterback this offseason.
