He needs to restructure, he's not young anymore, and his YAC is a negative.
We need flexability In case FA comes along.

He will restructure if Vikings make it worth his while. Money talks BS walks.

Yeah, he turned down a five year deal. He's going to pull a Shabazz, and price himself out of the league.

He didn't turn down anything. All that matters in NFL contracts is guaranteed money and the Vikings were offering squat.

Wrong, they offered a five year deal with the same money, but he turned it down. Don't have link, but it's on Star Tribe.

Look for the part about guaranteed money. You won't find it.
