Reiff was set to earn a $1 million bonus by playing at least 93.75 percent of the team’s offensive snaps, which meant he needed the team to run no more than 66 offensive plays in Week 17. They ran 74 plays in a 37-35 win over the Lions, so Reiff, who did not miss a snap prior to Week 17, was left just short of the incentive threshold.
The Vikings have found a way to get Reiff that money, however. Tom Pelissero of NFL Media reports that the team has reworked Reiff’s contract to give him a $1 million signing bonus.
Reiff has started 58 games in his first four years with the Vikings. The 2021 season is the final one on his current contract and he’s set to make a base salary of $6.65 million with a $5 million roster bonus due on the third day of the new league year.
