    highlight of the year?

    Glad we locked him up but I can’t help but think were over paying.

    Completely agree. Glad to see him back because he did improve this season under a new line coach, but I would have been firm around $18-20 million. I think they’re 3 for 3 on overpaying their own players this year. Peterson’s deal is the only one that I can understand it on because a guy like Snyder would have given him the same type of funny money, but I don’t think there is any chance another team would have given either Greenway or Sullivan the deals the Vikes came up with.
