Glad to hear that some of the younger guys that are stepping up and playing are getting rewarded for it.


Leading the Vikings in performance-based pay were three cornerbacks: Cedric Griffin ($208,000), rookie Marcus McCauley ($206,500) and Gordon. Of the eight players who received six-figure allocations, the highest-paid player was right tackle Ryan Cook, whose adjusted compensation was $972,385.

Maybe they should add Griff and Cook to the list of guys (TJ included) that need to get thier contracts re-done with all the CAP windfall we seem to have.

These insentive laden contracts are great for the salary cap environment of the NFL. It sets goals for those second tier players that don't have the big contracts.
