The Vikings have a number of young bright spots on their defense these days, but Harrison Smith is right up at the top of the list, and he wants everyone to know he loves playing in Minnesota.
Smith is entering the final year of his rookie contract and is scheduled to carry a cap hit of $2.271 million if he doesn’t get a new deal. A new deal is a real possibility, however, as Smith has met and exceeded expectations since Day One of his Vikings career.
“I have no intentions of going anywhere else,” Smith said this weekend. “I’ll just let [my agency] handle it. I’m just here to play football and we’ll see what happens.”
