Vikings OG Charlie Johnson Restuctures His Contract
Vikings left guard Charlie Johnson signed a new deal that cut his maximum compensation and his cap number for 2013 by $500,000, Tom Pelissro of 1500 ESPN reports citing an NFL source.
Johnson, 28, originally had a $500,000 roster bonus due on Saturday. He also was scheduled to make $2.95 million in base salary and a $50,000 workout bonus and had $250,000 available in "likely to be earned" incentives based on playing time.
The new deal increased the roster bonus to $750,000, erased the incentives and dropped his base salary to $2.45 million -- giving Johnson more money now to create more flexibility for the Vikings going forward.
His cap number dropped from $4.35 million to $3.85 million, which is at least slightly more palatable for a pedestrian guard entering the last non-voidable year of the contract he signed in July 2011.
