On August 31st head coach Kevin O’Connell announced that TJ Hockenson and the Vikings agreed to a contract extension.

The extension will make him one of the highest paid Tight Ends in the league per Adam Schefter.

Hockenson had a belter of a 2022 season with the Vikings, catching 60 passes (on 86 targets) for 519 yards and 3 TDs.

Hockenson’s 26 receptions in his first four Vikings games set an NFL record for receptions by a tight end in his first four games with a team. Hockenson’s 60 receptions over the final 10 weeks of 2022 trailed only Kansas City’s Travis Kelce’s 63 at the position.

Stay tuned for more details as they come available.
