Carlson Set To Make over $3 million of he returns to team

Over the last few seasons, the NFL has been taking notice of concussions and head injuries. It seems that tight end John Carlson, is also very cautious of concussions. In 2013, Carlson suffered his third concussion since being in the league. Now, Carlson is contemplating retirement.

As for general manager Rick Spielman, he says he has not heard a peep from Carlson if he would be returning to the team or not. Carlson is set to make 3.9 million if he comes back in 2014 to serve as the second string tight end behind Kyle Rudolph.

Carlson played in 13 games and made 8 starts, while recording 32 receptions for 341 yards and just one touchdown. The 29-year-old Carlson has a total of 177 catches, for 1,906 yards and 14 touchdowns.

    ARE YOU KIDDING ME?? 3.9 million?? Carlson was waaaay too much of a non-factor in 2013 to pay him that kind of coin next year. The Vikings could use the hell out of the cap space. I say WAIVE HIM, CUT HIM, WHATEVER YOU WANNA CALL IT, and put that 4 million bucks to much better use. It wouldn’t be hard at all to do that, and there are just too many ways for me to begin to list them here. Viking fans KNOW where the bread could be used. NO WAY you can justify laying out that much money for Carlson. Rudolph, maybe, but not Carlson. HEY, SPIELMAN, USE IT TO HELP FILL UP ALL OF THOSE DEFENSIVE HOLES, OR ON A QB WORTH PUTTING UNDER CENTER!!! GOT BRAINS?
