Vikings Defer Extra Cap Space

As we had previously mentioned, the Vikings were one of the teams in line to receive an additional $1.6 million in cap space as a result of the Dallas and Washington penalties for dumping cash into the uncapped year.

As it turns out, the Vikings are one of a handful of teams that have opted to not accept that cap space for 2012, and will instead benefit from the award in 2013.

That move wouldn’t have made much sense about four hours ago, but considering the Vikings might lead the league in cap space by the end of the day, I can see their reasoning.

Things are still pretty quiet on the free agency front, folks.
