Reports on Thursday said that Harrison Smith was willing and likely to take a pay cut so he could remain with the Minnesota Vikings. But on Friday, the rumor winds have changed directions.

Whatever parallel river the two sides were traveling down earlier in the week, it seems to have hit a split. This according to Darren Wolfson (SKOR North), the same reporter who foresaw a deal coming between the two sides just one day ago.

Did the Vikings come in so low, in their initial offer to renegotiate Harrison Smith’s contract, that he and/or his agent are now feeling disrespected? Is this a negotiating tactic by Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, in order to bend Smith’s camp at the knees?

We’ll find out. What we know for sure is that Harrison Smith will not be coming back to play for the Minnesota Vikings under his current cap number. Here’s a link to the new Mackey & Judd podcast episode, which just released about 15 minutes ago.
