    I'm assuming it's as of this minute. Sure, there will be increases in many of the contracts at the end of the year, contract expiring, etc. Poison Pill should have that under control, who knows what the real number is based on the future.

    In 2007 the Vikings will have to deal witht the following FAs (according to KFFL stats):

    I think he is, and he's going to want a big payday...especially after seeing what Hutch received. He'd better pick up his level of play this year and earn it, or we will likely be in the market for a new LT.

    Why don't we go after a stud LB? Someone to mentor Greenway.

    According to Prophets last post McKinney's contract year isn't till 2008
    Fox Sports reports: News: T Bryant McKinnie's rookie contract expires after the 2006 season.
    Impact: If "Mount McKinnie" isn't extended by the Vikes, he'll enter an impressive market for left tackles next year. Bengals T Levi Jones, Jeff Backus of the Lions, and the Bills' Mike Gandy are also due to become free agents. (Sun. May 21, 2006)

    LAYING IT ON THE LINE
    Having poured $49 million into its offensive line, the Minnesota Vikings are prepared to spend some more.

    Vikings left tackle Bryant McKinnie is scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after this season and some NFL executives believe Steve Hutchinson's new $49 million contract with Minnesota could influence those negotiations.

    For starters, Hutchinson's contract contains a clause -- the "poison pill" that prevented Seattle from matching the offer sheet -- that mandates he be the highest-paid offensive lineman on his team this season or his contract must be fully guaranteed.

    This means that if the Vikings were to negotiate a contract extension with McKinnie this season, it could not pay him more than $7 million per year, or they would have to guarantee Hutchinson's contract in full.

    But after the Vikings play their last game this season, there would be no restrictions on what they could pay McKinnie, a 26-year-old ascending offensive tackle whose biggest asset is his pass-protection skills.

    The Vikings have been fully aware of McKinnie's contract status, but it doesn't change the fact that, at this time next year, the team could be pouring a ton of money into the left side of its offensive line.

    This year, Hutchinson cashed in. Sometime in the next year, McKinnie will.

    Re: Vikings still have $12M in cap space

    Let's just see what McKinnie does this season, and then at the end of the year, they can make the decision. It sounds like there will be some other options, if they're unable to keep McKinnie.
