    A question for those who know about Vikings Payroll

    I am a new Vikings fan
    I was looking at Salaries for the NFL my info was coming form the web foxsports it says The Minnesota Vikings Have the 3rd highest salary of all 32 teams The patriots being #1
    is this accurate?
    It also showed that TJ was paid lower than BB and KH, Holcomb being the highest paid of the Three...Is this accurate ?
    Who are the top 5 or six paid players on the Vikings?
    It seems that the owners are paying to put out a good product, am I reading to much into this

    Re: A question for those who know about Vikings Payroll

    It probably is accurate....I'm not really sure?? But it would not surprise me one bit....We pay out so much in Salaries and don't get the yield or return on the field....Sounds about right for the recent history of this Franchise....It is disappointing to me! Sounds like it might be time for GM and others to take a serious look at this area.

    Cheers!

    Re: A question for those who know about Vikings Payroll

    How can that be?

    Teams like the Colts and Redskins have been in cap trouble the past few years due to the huge contracts they've been taking on.

    If I remember correctly, the Pat Williams deal somehow gave us another 10 million to spend in salary cap space this year? Putting us up to something like 38 million?

    Edit: I might be very wrong.

    Re: A question for those who know about Vikings Payroll

    Cap space is affected by signing bonuses and incentives and all sorts of other things that are not included in the salary reports.
    So I wouldn't be surprised if the Vikings have one of the highest base salaries.
    We are one of the best in terms of cap space though.

    I'm in accounting, I do payroll every day, and I have no idea how the nfl does their payroll, it just doesn't make any sense.

    Ok, I know this is from a FF site.
    But they do list the 2007 salary.
    Hope it is accurate.

    If they are saying that we have the 3rd highest team salary that has to be wrong.
    We are 28 million dollars under the salary cap.
