Vikings linebacker Eric Kendricks will be staying in Minnesota for years to come.
The Vikings announced today that they have agreed to a contract extension with Kendricks, their 2015 second-round draft pick.
Kendricks had one year left on his rookie contract, at a salary of $1.1 million. According to multiple reports, Kendricks will make $50 million over five years if he plays out the full contract, and he has $25 million guaranteed.
Kendricks started all 16 regular-season games and both postseason games for the Vikings last season.
