Thanks for the sober, careful, non-hysterical rundown on the salary cap, Joe. Barr should be extended this off-season, in part to lower his salary cap hit this year. If I were working for Hunter, I’d tell him to wait until next off-season because he should have a very nice bounce back year with Sheldon Richardson providing the most interior pressure we’ve seen since Kevin Williams. Diggs is a tougher call given his injury history, so he might be better off settling for a Top 10 contract with serious incentives baked in. I’m also hoping that Thielen asks for and gets a restructured contract increasing his base pay significantly (if teams can force players to restructure their contracts down, no one should have a problem with players forcing teams to do the opposite). Let’s also not forget that the Vikings will almost certainly offer Trae Waynes a fifth-year tender in the coming days, which should be for just over $9 million according to the charts and articles what I’ve read so far today. Knock on wood, after continuing to improve in the 2018 season, we’ll be looking at extending the contracts of Waynes, Mackenzie Alexander and Nick Easton this time next year (although I think I’ve read rumblings that an extension might already be in the works for Easton).
