NFL: Detroit Lions at Minnesota Vikings Harrison Barden-USA TODAY Sports


I will continue to pound the drums for the team to get extensions done for Jefferson, Hunter, and Hockenson before training camp begins. They have the cap space. Here is what I would offer with the hopes that it is sufficient and fair.

First, the current cap space ...
Season : Cap Space
2023 : $17,809,972 | 2024 : $53,446,344
Hockenson gets a 4 yr 58M deal
Hunter gets a 3 yr 66M deal
Jefferson gets a 5 yr 168M deal
2023 : $8,044,972 | 2024 : $23,554,177
