Berrian Agrees To Restructured Contract

It was all too curious, the Vikings decision to not jettison the recently underwhelming Bernard Berrian and his $3.9 million base salary.

Berrian’s contract was going to count $6.3 million against the salary cap.

Thus, it is good to know that Berrian agreed to restructure his contract which will now expire after the 2012 season.

The exact details of what his new salary and cap hit will be are not yet known.

“It was kind of up the air,” Berrian said of the negotiations. “I knew the media had been talking about it, but when I got word from them then that’s when we went in and met and got the deal done.”

Berrian did say that his pay cut will not motivate him.

“No, I don’t let contracts try to motivate me,” he said. “I just get motivated for myself.”

I, for one, think that Berrian still has skills to stretch the field and be a game changing playmaker.  His apparent lack of toughness and dedication, however, has been troubling over the last two seasons.

Meanwhile, rumors still persist that the Vikings could still be in play to land the troubled wide receiver Braylon Edwards.
