Harrison Smith agrees to pay cut, will return for 13th season

The Minnesota Vikings continue to make moves but this time they did so in house with by restructuring the contract of safety Harrison Smith. The news was reported by NFL Network’s Tom Pelissero.

Smith took a pay cut of $6.7 million to stay in 2023 and he didn’t quite take that much this year. He will be making $9 million in 2024, a pay cut of $5.45 million.

Smith was excellent for the Vikings in 2023 and defensive coordinator Brian Flores, who allowed him to finally be the player that earned multiple Pro Bowl appearances and an All-Pro: a rover that is great on the blitz.

Smith is a key piece to the Vikings defense and he will be a key cog in 2024.
