Center Garrett Bradbury will be staying in Minnesota.

According to multiple reports, Bradbury has agreed to a three-year, $15.75 million contract to remain with the Vikings.

The Vikings did not exercise Bradbury’s fifth-year option before the 2022 season, but they decided to bring him back after he started 12 regular season games and a playoff game. Bradbury has started all 60 games he’s played since the Vikings made him the 18th overall pick in the 2019 draft.

Bradbury was the only starter on the Vikings offensive line set for free agency this offseason. Head coach Kevin O’Connell said recently that the team expects right tackle Brian O'Neill back for camp after tearing his Achilles.

  1. Wow things are not looking up in Minnesota.

    When your locking up “busts” there is a problem.

  2. Maybe we can line up our new tight end right off of Bradbury‘s hip on passing downs.

  3. Its a win win. Five million dollars a year with little guaranteed money for a starting center is a very reasonable contract.

  4. That’s a pretty fair deal in my opinion. Not sure what the guaranteed money is, but they should be able to move on from Bradbury fairly quickly if he doesn’t play the way he did last year.

  5. Actually……that sounds like a pretty good deal. He did improve last year but is hardly Jason Kelce. A decent starting C for 5/6 million, pretty team friendly

  6. The offense just needs to perform the same. Having all 5 OL back is a good start. But we are all waiting to see what that defense can improve too. I’d take middle of the pack/15-16.

  7. Not many other options and the price is right. Just hope he players more like last year than his previous 3. Tired of watching him getting pushed into Cousins on a regular basis. At least Hicks is gone from Chicago, but Clark from GB eats his lunch.

  8. $7 for a te that can’t catch & $5 for a center that was supposed to get $10M – talk about bizzarro world

  9. Fair deal for. A decent not great player. The O wasn’t really the problem. We need 75% new defensive players.

  10. Another lifelong Vikings fan. I feel like we have a ton of holes to fill with no draft picks we were stuck signing this guy because we can’t spend to get a good free agent. The interior of the line gets pushed around and this won’t help that. But it might allow us to pencil in some players at linebacker, d-line, DB, OG and maybe safety. If Cine and Booth don’t work out the bust isn’t Bradbury it’s Kwesi.

  11. I think they just paid the guy backup money so that they can draft a center to bring in and develop. This feels like a no lose situation for Minny.

  12. Why? Because (1) $5M/yr with very little guaranteed gives flexibility; (2) that’s the market for average at best centers; and (3) they need to spend draft picks and cap hits on defense. While easily their least exciting signing of the off-season, this bothers me less than the lack of action on bolstering the D.
