Is a deal between the Vikings and Justin Jefferson expected to be reached by Sunday?


Sep 9, 2023

It’s big-contract season for certain players. However, it’s uncertain whether Vikings receiver Justin Jefferson will be receiving a new contract. According to a source, the likelihood of a new contract for the reigning offensive player of the year before Sunday is only 30 percent. The source states that the decision lies with the Vikings organization. Jefferson has expressed his desire for a contract but understands that it ultimately depends on the team’s ownership.

One potential obstacle for Jefferson is the structure of the Vikings’ contracts. Unlike other teams, the Vikings do not fully guarantee money beyond the current year, with the exception of quarterback Kirk Cousins. It would be wise for the Vikings to make an exception for Jefferson as well. Teams often worry about setting a bad precedent with certain contract terms, fearing that other players will demand similar treatment. However, the response should be simple: if a player performs like Justin Jefferson, then they will be treated accordingly.
