The Minnesota Vikings announced that they’ve re-signed S Andrew Sendejo to an extension.
- The Vikings also re-signed exclusive rights free agents WR Adam Thielen and T Carter Bykowski and placed a low-round tender on restricted free agent FB Zach Line.
Mike Garafolo of FOX Sports reports that the Vikings and S Andrew Sendejo have reached an agreement on a new contract.
- Ian Rapoport confirms the news and adds that Sendejo receives a four-year contract worth $16 million.
- Garafolo isn’t sure how this will impact the Vikings’ free agency plans in regards to the safety position, but still expects someone like Bengals S George Iloka to be in the mix for them.
Sendejo, 28, originally signed on with the Cowboys as an undrafted free agent out of back in 2010. He had a brief stint with the Jets before the Vikings signed him during the 2011 season.
Minnesota later signed him to on a two-year contract during the 2013 season.
Sendejo would have been an unrestricted free agent in the coming days.
In 2015, Sendejo appeared in 13 games and recorded 74 tackles, a half sack, an interception, a fumble recovery and three pass defenses. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 85 safety out of 88 qualifying players.
