    Are Vikings Trying To Restructure McKinnie's Contr

    But McKinnie could be a prime candidate to have his contract re-worked, along with wide receiver Bernard Berrian. Both are clients of agent, Drew Rosenhaus.
    McKinnie, who is entering his 10th NFL season, signed a seven-year, $48.5 million extension in September 2006 that included $17.25 million in new guarantees. It was a major investment and sometimes McKinnie is worth it.
    McKinnie's cap number for this season is $5.4 million and he has a base salary of $4.9 million with a $500,000 roster bonus. His base salaries for the final two seasons of the contract (2012 and 2013) are $4.5 million and $4.0 million with cap numbers of $6.5 million in each year.
    Could the Vikings be trying to alter those figures? Some of that may depend on what new offensive coordinator Bill Musgrave and offensive line coach Jeff Davidson think of McKinnie and have told coach Leslie Frazier and vice president of player personnel Rick Spielman.
    It just seems interesting that the name of a left tackle would suddenly come up if the Vikings were completely content with McKinnie at his current price.

    This can only be good news if they are trying to reduce the cost to the team for this eejit, waste of money, plow haulin, horrendous blocking asshat.
    I'd rather see him traded away..........far, far, away.


    Personally, I don't think there is intelligent life on other planets. Why should other planets be any different from this one?

    Maybe that will light a fire under his ass....

    ...or maybe his feelings will get hurt and he'll bolt to Seattle too.

    Either one is fine by me.

    Do we have anyone either on the roster or currently chasing after that doesn't have Drew representing them?

    Anyways, this makes more sense than moving a certain RT to RG.
    Many many thanks to my talented friend Jos for the new Sig.http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v343/josdin00/Vikings/Marrdro_sig.jpg

    I'd be fine with him getting replaced at a discount. Maybe by somebody who at least gives the impression of giving a damn.
