Vikings FB Jerome Felton Hopes To Re-Sign Before Free Agency
Vikings fullback Jerome Felton, signed to a one-year deal last March, is scheduled to become a free agent in March. But the first-time Pro Bowler has made it very clear he doesn’t want to hit the open market, hoping his agent and the Vikings front office can quickly get a deal done to keep them here for a while.
In an exit meeting Monday with General Manager Rick Spielman, Felton made his wishes clear, expressing gratitude to the Vikings for giving him a chance to showcase his skills this year and hoping he can continue to do so.
“I know it’s a business and all that,” Felton said. “But I feel good about being here. So I hope they get something done … This is where I want to be. I want it to get done.”
Felton has joked around with friends that he believes he’s the best fullback in the league. Now, he said, with a trip booked to Oahu for the Pro Bowl, he has much greater supporting evidence.
“Now I’ve got a little bit more credibility,” he said.
