The Vikings announced the deal on Monday, the first day of offseason workouts. Kendricks has one year left on his rookie contract, after being drafted in the second round out of UCLA in 2015 and immediately becoming a starter on one of the top defenses in the NFL.

Kendricks has led the Vikings in total tackles in each of his first three seasons, becoming only the second player in franchise history to do so, joining Rip Hawkins. Last year, Kendricks had a career-high 136 total tackles. He has two interception returns for touchdowns since entering the league plus 30 tackles for loss, 26 quarterback hurries and 21 pass breakups.
