Even though the Minnesota Vikings are in a position where they need to do what they can to win games now, they aren't going to jeopardize their future by allowing their homegrown talent to leave in free agency. According to ESPN's Adam Schefter, Kendricks is signing a five-year, $50 million extension with the Vikings.

Kendricks' new deal includes $25M guaranteed money. He's led the team in tackling every year since being drafted. That means he could be making somewhere around the $12.4 million Luke Kuechly makes per season.

The 26-year-old's deal comes one month and one day after the team signed quarterback Kirk Cousins to a three-year, $84 million deal, and it indicates the Vikings will continue to be aggressive in locking up their young players. Kendricks is paired with another fellow Bruin, linebacker Anthony Barr, in Minnesota's stout defense.

Coming off the most successful season in eight years, the Minnesota Vikings have worked toward solidifying their roster to continue their uprising to the top of the league.

It's a good day for Eric Kendricks' bank account.
