The Minnesota Vikings have locked up another core piece of their defense, signing Linval Joseph to a four-year contract extension that puts him under team control through the 2022 season.Joseph's agency, SportsTrust Advisors, announced the agreement Saturday. Then the Vikings confirmed it a few hours later after Joseph met general manager Rick Spielman to sign the deal . There was no rush, with two years remaining on the current contract, Stefon Diggs Jerseys but Joseph was happy to have the added security even if his market price could have risen with another strong season.“This game don't last forever, at the end of the day," Joseph said after Harrison Smith Jerseys the team's night practice at Adrian Peterson Jerseys Minnesota State University. “It was a great opportunity." NFL Media reported that Joseph's new contract is worth as much as $50 million, with $31.5 million in guaranteed money. He joined the Vikings as a free agent in 2014 after leaving the New York Giants, who drafted him in the second round in 2010 out of East Carolina. Joseph is a native of the U.S. Virgin Islands whose family moved to Florida when he was 10.This is the third extension the Vikings have done since Teddy Bridgewater Jerseys training camp began, having previously signed defensive end Everson Griffen and cornerback Xavier Rhodes to new long-term deals, all Brett Favre Jerseys through the 2022 season. Free safety Harrison Smith is signed through 2021.“I feel like we have something special. We have a lot of guys who want to work. Once you have guys like that, that's how you build a great team," Joseph said, adding: “I feel like I'm a part of something, and that's a great feeling. Right now I just want to grow. I want our team to grow. And I want to win that big ring."This is Joseph's fourth year with the Vikings, all under coach Mike Zimmer, who recently called Joseph the best nose tackle he's “ever been around" in 24 seasons in the NFL.
