La Canfora spoke with a number of GMs around the league who are concerned about where he is in his career and wondered if he would be willing to even accept a one-year, $5 million contract that included incentives.

An NFL contract negotiator agreed that it’s unlikely there will be a lot of interest if Minnesota elects to move on from him.
