Still no movement on Za’Darius Smith or Dalvin Cook. No news on any contract extensions or trades. It will probably stay that way for a little bit.

Spotrac does not show an update for CJ Ham but Overthecap shows a new deal for him where he got a 2.3M signing bonus with a 1.1M salary and a 100K workout bonus for a cap hit of 2.7M in 2023. That save the team 1.1M from his previous cap hit of 3.8M. He ha salaries of 2.4M in 2024 and 2.55M in 2025 with a 100K workout bonus in each year. His cap hit in 2024 is 3.267M and in 2025 it is 3.417M. He did play on 66% of the special teams snaps and had 10 receptions for 86 yards and 4 carries for 7 yards last year. Good for him is all. The Vikings keep an indispensable part of the offense.

Again, we all know the rules, but in case someone is new:

  • No discussion of politics or religion
  • No feeding of the trolls
  • Leave the gender hatred at the door
  • Keep the bad language to a minimum (using the spoiler tags, if you must)
  • Speaking of which, if discussing a newer show or movie, please use spoiler tags
  • No pictures that could get someone fired or in serious trouble with their employer
  • If you can’t disagree in a civil manner, feel free to go away
  • While navigating the open thread, just assume it’s sarcasm
