There will be no franchise tag, only a franchise running back getting a huge payday.
The Pro Bowl running back and the Minnesota Vikings have agreed to a five-year, $63 million extension, NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero and NFL Network Insider Ian Rapoport reported Saturday. The deal will see Cook get $28 million guaranteed. Along with that, Cook received a $15.5 million signing bonus, which is the largest for a non-quarterback in Vikings history, Pelissero added. The team later confirmed the signing.
