youngest rosters Everyone knows that the Minnesota Vikings have one of the most talented rosters in the National Football League from top to bottom. After Saturday’s 53-man roster cutdowns were concluded http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/authentic-mike-hughes-jersey , they also stood as having one of the league’s youngest teams.According to this article, the Vikings are now the sixth-youngest team in the entire NFL, and the third-youngest in the NFC.It’s been quite the striking turnaround for the Vikings, as far as the age of their roster is concerned. In 2016, they had the second-oldest roster in the National Football League, with an average age of 26.6 years old. Now, the average age of a member of the Vikings is 25.5 years of age.As the article says Womens Tom Compton Jersey , the difference in age between the teams might not look like a big deal at first, but if you take a look at the Vikings’ roster and the oldest roster on the list, the Oakland Raiders, the difference becomes more noticeable. The Raiders average age is 27.4 years old, nearly two full years more than Minnesota’s roster. Spread out over 53 players, that’s over a century of difference.With the retirement of cornerback Terence Newman, who will turn 40 on Tuesday Kyle Rudolph Jersey , and the release of 35-year old defensive end Brian Robison, the elder statesman of the Vikings’ roster is now safety Andrew Sendejo at age. . .31. He is joined by quarterback Kirk Cousins, defensive end Everson Griffen, and cornerback Marcus Sherels as the only players on the Vikings’ current roster that are age 30 or older.With the Vikings having one of the NFL’s youngest rosters and having locked many key pieces of that roster into contracts for the foreseeable future, the Vikings “window” of competitive football appears to be a pretty large one, and it’s one that should be open for quite a few years to come. Vikings receiver Adam Thielen makes much less than Vikings receiver Stefon Diggs. And both Thielen and the Vikings seem to be committed to closing that gap.Agent Blake Baratz, appearing on SKOR North in Minnesota http://www.thevikingslockerroom.com/authentic-nick-easton-jersey , expressed optimism that an adjusted deal will be negotiated for Thielen, who has become one of the best receivers in the NFL. Baratz believes it will happen without Thielen holding out.“Adam’s not that type of person,” Baratz said, via Courtney Cronin of ESPN.com. “I would never condone a player to hold out or be disruptive if it wasn’t for a very valid reason, and [what’s not] a valid reason, to me, is both sides working in good faith to come to a conclusion that makes sense for everybody.”Baratz added that Adam wants to remain in Minnesota Laquon Treadwell Jersey , and that the Vikings want to financially reward Thielen, a local success story who came from virtually nowhere to become a star player.“No one’s being greedy,” Baratz said. “Everyone understands the situation and it’s really in their court. He has a couple of years left on his deal but he’s earned a significant pay raise.”Thielen enters the third season of a four-year, $19.246 million base deal. Diggs has a five-year, $72 million contract.The Vikings have been paying big contracts to their nucleus of key players (with the exception of linebacker Anthony Barr). With quarterback Kirk Cousins making $28 million per year on a three-year deal, however, only so much money will remain for other players and positions. In a pass-happy league Womens Xavier Rhodes Jersey , however, it makes sense for teams to find multiple great receivers, and to compensate them accordingly.
