Vikings Sign Garrett Bradbury to New Contract
Minnesota Vikings GM, Kwesi Adofo-Mensah, is wheeling and dealing from his office at TCO Performance Center on Tuesday. Earlier, he restructured the contract of Kirk Cousins to create cap space in 2023. And breaking now, the Vikings have agreed to terms on a new contract with (C) Garrett Bradbury. It’s reportedly worth 3 years, $15.75 million.

Garrett Bradbury FTW
Since the start of the offseason, the Vikings have made it known that they wanted Garrett Bradbury back, but only at the right price. His projected contract varied, depending on who was doing the guessing. Some had him worth as little as $6 million per season. Others had him making nearly $12 million per year.
Clearly, the Vikings demanded the much lower end of that spectrum and, eventually, Bradbury realized that was his market value. This is a great signing for both sides. Bradbury will have his chance to prove he has more than one good year in him. The Vikings fill a hole that they desperately needed filled this offseason and they do it for a bargain price.
