Lets take a look at who will be sitting this one out for both sides, starting with the visiting team.New Orleans SaintsOL Jermon BushrodOL Will ClappCB Ken CrawleyDB J.T. GrayOL Chaz GreenDE Trey HendricksonDL Mitchell LoewenBushrod not starting comes as a bit of a surprise. He was listed on the teams injury report (one of only two players, along with Loewen), but was a full participant on Friday and was listed as Not Injury Related. But, his absence should help the Vikings defense, thats for sure.Human target Ken Crawley is also out, meaning that the Saints will be starting Eli Apple Garrett Bradbury Minnesota Vikings Jerseys , who they acquired earlier this week, at corner.And now, on to the home team.Minnesota VikingsLB Anthony BarrOL Tom ComptonRB Dalvin CookOT Riley ReiffCB Xavier RhodesS Andrew SendejoQB Kyle SloterContrary to what was reported earlier, cornerback Xavier Rhodes is inactive for this one. Rookie cornerback Holton Hill will get his first NFL start in Rhodes place. Linebacker Eric Wilson is also getting his first start in place of Anthony Barr.However, defensive end Everson Griffen is active for the first time since Week 3, so thats good, at least. Unfortunately, Rhodes absence means that the Vikings have six starters down for tonights contest.Those are your inactives for tonight Minnesota Vikings Jerseys 2019 , ladies and gentlemen. The Open Thread for the first quarter of play will be along shortly.

Cooper-USA TODAY SportsWelcome back to The Daily Rudolph, where were tracking all of the latest developments between the Minnesota Vikings and their starting tight end as they try to work out some sort of a deal.Today, news has come down from the folks at Pro Football Talk that Garrett Bradbury Jersey Cheap , while not much process is being made, the Vikings have made an extension offer to Kyle Rudolph. And, if what theyre saying is accurate. . .well, its a little strange.Heres what PFTs report says:As it stands now, Rudolphs $7.625 million cap hit is the fifth-highest at the position in the NFL, according to Over the Cap. If this (hypothetical) extension would keep him among the highest paid tight ends in the league, lets take a look at what sort of numbers that could mean.Per the numbers from Over the Cap, the average cap hit for the five highest-paid tight ends in the NFL will be $11 Garrett Bradbury Jersey Womens ,293,313 for the 2020 season and $9.430,966 for 2021. For a guy that would be in his mid-30s before a five-year contract extension expired, that seems like a lot. Unless Rudolph is going to be the second coming of Jason Witten or something, that kind of salary feels a little excessive.I cant see the Vikings offering Rudolph that long an extension with those sorts of numbers attached. If they had, Id find it difficult to believe that Rudolph wouldnt have signed it by now if there was more guaranteed money attached.The next round of OTAs get underway in Eagan on Tuesday. Will the two sides come to some sort of an agreement before then?
