Contract terms for OLB Andrew Van Ginkel have been released

The Minnesota Vikings made a lot of free-agent signings during the first wave of free agency. Arguably my favorite one of them was outside linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel.

After playing with Brian Flores for three seasons, Van Ginkel had a breakout with the Miami Dolphins. He signed a two-year, $20 million contract with the Vikings and the terms of the contract were disclosed by The Star Tribune’s Ben Goessling. The deal is structured like this:

  • $7 million signing bonus spread across five years

  • 4 void years are on the deal

  • $1.78 million base salary in 2024 fully guaranteed

  • $10.78 million base salary in 2025 ($1 million fully guaranteed, $3 million more for injury only. That injury guarantee vests on third day of 2025 league year.)

  • Per game roster bonuses of $170k in 2024 and 2025

  • $50k workout bonuses in 2024 and 2025.

  • 2024 cap hit: $3.4 million

  • 2025 cap hit: $12.4 million

The Vikings adding void years to Van Ginkel’s deal signals a want to keep him around long term and also ease the cap hit for 2024 to make the math work out better.
