Xavier Rhodes has hit the jackpot.
The Vikings announced Sunday that Rhodes had signed a contract extension, but didn’t disclose the terms of the deal.
We just see the game the same way. We’re similar personality-type guys. On and off the field we have really good dialogue about football. That’s a huge plus for us. He has a lot of faith in me at the line of scrimmage to make a check and I have a ton of faith in him at the right time of the game when we need a great call and he’s making it as well as making great in-game adjustments. He’s a really smart guy on his feet and a really good, quick decision-maker.
How quick an impact is rookie wide receiver Kenny Golladay making?
He’s doing a nice job for us. He’s a big, physical guy — 6-foot-4 and about 215-220 pounds. He runs really good for his size and is just trying to soak up all the information he can get, which is awesome. He came in with an open mind to learn and work hard. He’s a guy that is after practice grabbing me saying, Hey, I want to throw these couple of routes with you. I need to work on my footwork or my timing.
Whatever it is, he’s a great worker. For rookies sometimes being a diligent worker is something that’s kind of hard to find. Really, all the guys we’ve brought in as rookies are really good workers.
According to NFL.com reporter Tom Pelissero, Bell turned down a deal that would have averaged $14 million per year over his next three seasons. Instead, he’ll make a shade over $12 million — fully Cheap High Quality NFL Jerseys guaranteed — as the team’s designated franchise player. A repeat of his 2016 performance, in which he gained Cheap Goalkeeper Jerseys more than 100 yards per game on 4.9 yards per carry, could eclipse that extra $30 million in guarantees.
