Wolfson expects Minnesota to get something done with O’Neill sometime this calendar year.

The Vikings are also discussing an extension with S Harrison Smith and Wolfson thinks it’s not out of the question both deals are done by the start of camp. 

O’Neill is the Vikings’ best offensive lineman and has been a stalwart on the right side of the offensive line the past couple of seasons. 

O’Neil, 22, was taken with the No. 62 overall pick by the Vikings out of Pittsburgh in 2018. He signed a four-year, $4,406,640 contract that includes a $1,284,828 signing bonus.

In 2020, O’Neill started all 16 games for the Vikings at right tackle. Pro Football Focus rated him as the No. 24 offensive tackle out of 79 qualifying players.
