Vikings sign Josh Metellus to a 2-year extension

The Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a two-year contract extension with safety Josh Metellus. The deal is worth up to $13 million with $6 million guaranteed and was first reported by ESPN’s Adam Schefter.

The extension was interesting on multiple levels. The Vikings restructured the contract of Harrison Smith this offseason, essentially marking his exit after the season.

The coaching staff has also spoken incredibly highly of Metellus all offseason, who has earned the role if big nickel defenders.

Going into week one, the Vikings were projected to sign an extension with Justin Jefferson and that could still happen, but Metellus gets an extension first. Signing a player selected in the sixth round is both great for the player but also shows the rest of the league that development gets rewarded.
