Ian Rapoport @RapSheet
The #Vikings are signing OT Mike Remmers to a 5-year, $30M contract, source said.

Let's hope these two are good. I like that they added OTs, as I think they can find a RG in the draft. I have my doubts about how good this guy is, but we'll find out next season.

I'd now like to see a LB or DB signed....

$6M a year... Interested in seeing the details. Fair Price.


Should be an easy out after 2 years much like Boone's deal.

We still should have cap space. Had close to $39M to begin with,

Should be around $23-25M now

On par with what Denver just gave Watson.

Hopefully structured like a two year deal.

My guess is 9 or so guaranteed. 6-8 and the Vikes got a great deal, 14+ and Remmers made out like a bandit. Overall not too bad of a deal

Guess that officially puts Reiff on the left side.

Not overly excited but definitely an improvement from last year. Looks like a Vikings, that's always a plus.

Ultimately, an OL must be built through the draft. These are stop gap pieces that should do more to help us win games now and hopefully allow us to truly develop OL. I feel tackle is less of a priority where we can use our early pick on a RG, but we've got to find at least one tackle by round four.

I would've rather signed Mitchell Schwartz last offseason $33 million / 5 years instead of Mike Remmers this offseason for $30 million / 5 years, but it is what it is.

Urgh... Bad signing. Remmers is bad. I would've been okay with it if it had been a 1 year deal like Andre Smith.

He was bad at LT, but was decent at RT. He gets a bad rap because he couldn't block Von Miller one on one in the super bowl. Well there aren't many that can

It easy to look at the price tag and have some sticker shock, but we had a need at tackle and signed two of the top 10 available in free agency.

Reiff/Remmers is much better than anything we trotted out last year, particularly in the run game. With Remmers, you have to remember he's also coming from a deep drop offense with a QB that likes to hold the ball and he still was better on a snaps per pressure allowed basis than anything we had.

6M per year I going to be chump change for a right tackle at this time next year with the way the cap keeps jumping.
