Vikings sign Eric Kendricks to reported five-year, $50 million extension

Even though the Minnesota Vikings are in a position where they need to do what they can to win games now, they aren't going to jeopardize their future by allowing their homegrown talent to leave in free agency. According to Ian Rapoport of The NFL Network, the front office has inked Pro Bowl linebacker Eric Kendricks to a lucrative long-term deal.

It's a five-year deal worth $50 million, including $25 million guaranteed, a source told ESPN's Adam Schefter.

Minnesota drafted Kendricks in the second round of the 2015 NFL Draft out of UCLA. He had a team-high 113 tackles in 2017. That means he could be making somewhere around the $12.4 million Luke Kuechly makes per season. Wide receiver Stefon Diggs, linebacker Anthony Barr and defensive end Danielle Hunter are scheduled to become free agents after the season and may also be in line for extensions before the regular season begins.

One of the most important pieces from the Minnesota Vikings' league-best scoring and yardage defense is sticking around long term.

The Vikings announced the extension on Monday morning.
