[NFL] Vikings Agree on Kleinsasser

Recommended Posts

One of the NFL's best but still underrated tight ends, Kleinsasser will sign a five-year contract worth about $15 million. The deal includes a $4.25 million signing bonus and comes just hours before the standout tight end would have become a free agent. Kleinsasser's contract makes the five-year veteran among the highest-paid players at his position. An improving receiver, Kleinsasser's totals in the passing game have improved in every season, and he posted career-bests in catches (46), receiving yards (401) and touchdowns (four) in 2003. In five seasons, Kleinsasser has 123 catches for 1,090 yards and five touchdowns. But it is in the running game where Kleinsasser is key to the Minnesota offense, a strong in-line blocker and also seals the edge well on the sweep. Scouts from other teams have noted in the past two years that if the Vikings ever lost Kleinsasser, they would have to significantly overhaul their blocking scheme. Well being a Vikings fan, this is good news... they need him!
