    2006 Vikings Base Salaries

    I found this kinda interesting. Out of all the players on the team I think I am most surprised at how much Jimmy K. is making. Dont get me wrong he is my favorite player but I think he is really getting overpaid.

    Even more of a surprise is Antoine Winfield is the highest paid player on the team.

    275k must be league min I am assuming? Am I correct I see several players with that the lowest salary on the board.

    Re: 2006 Vikings Base Salaries

    A look at the unguaranteed portion of Vikings player salaries for 2006. While this doesn't include signing bonus money, the guaranteed part of contracts, it might help in deciphering close races for roster spots at training camp.
    This is similar to anoth thread that was up a few weeks ago. Bottom line, it is interesting, but simply does not paint an accurate picture of the player's worth.

    Re: 2006 Vikings Base Salaries

    This is an interesting list to look at ... while I knew Birk and Winfield were the top paid SALARY players, we have to remember that bonuses are not included into this mix (explaining Hutch's low number). A lot of money in the NFL is given in bonuses ... even Winfield has a pretty penny more due to his bonus ... It will be interesting to see how we deal with the highly underpaid McKinnie in the future and the apparently highly overpaid Napo.

    I think you are referring to this thread. The bottom-line is that the signing bonuses and the real money that people make aren't included in the base salaries. The base salaries are just part of the salary cap game.

    Interesting nonetheless.
