As a first round pick Kalil has a 5th year, team option.
Ok, cool. Then it is 3 more years till the vikes try and keep kalil from free agency. You're the expert, sorry for my joke.

No worries, I didn't take any offense.

You're right though, they may just rip up that option and sign him to a new deal. It all depends on how the cap looks.

In an interview with Peter King, Seattle GM John Schneider made one thing clear to those questioning the motivation for the Vikings trading Percy Harvin: The Vikings set the parameters for the trade and initiated contact.

As a form of background information as to what changed Schneider’s mind about Harvin, it was pointed out that his relationship with the Vikings was “poisonous,” dating back to a fracturing of the Harvin-Vikings relationship during the Brad Childress days. While Viking Update has speculated that one of the reasons for Harvin’s disgruntlement was that, growing up, there were a handful of people Harvin idolized. One was Brett Favre. One was Randy Moss. Neither one got along particularly well with Chilly. The “poisonous” line makes sense when being reported from the outside by another franchise doing its “due diligence.”

In the end, there is a growing sentiment that, despite losing one of the NFL’s few pure difference-makers, the financial reality of the Harvin unhappiness is that the Vikings got as much as they possibly could for a player who didn’t want to stay. If the Vikings use one of their two first-round picks on a wide receiver, the salary cap implications for that player and Greg Jennings will be the same amount Seattle is paying Harvin. There is a downside to trading Harvin, but there were many extraneous factors – as wordsmiths broke down the differentiation between the phrases “no intent” and “no intention” as it pertained to moving Harvin, the real information will come out in dribs and drabs in the coming months and years.
