Contract details for Dalton Risner revealed

The Minnesota Vikings pulled the trigger and signed guard Dalton Risner to a contract on Monday afternoon. What wasn’t released at the time of the announcement were the details of the contract.

According to 9Sports’ Mike Klis, the Vikings gave Risner a one-year deal worth up to $4 million with a guaranteed $2.25 million.

Money was likely why Risner didn’t sign back when he visited in August. Another potential reason was the ability to be a starter. Giving him up to $4 million says that they want him to potentially be a starter.

ESPN’s Kevin Seifert echoed that same sentiment.

What will happen with the Vikings interior is a major question now moving forward. Here is what we do know about Risner.

  • He played center and right tackle at Kansas State

  • With the Denver Broncos, he played exclusively left guard

With that kind of background, there are a lot of different things that the Vikings could do with him moving forward. We will see what happens, but there is competition on the Vikings offensive line.
