Vikings sign LB Eric Kendricks to contract extension

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) The Minnesota Vikings can cross another core player off their to-do list for contract extensions.

Linebacker Eric Kendricks became the latest recipient of a new multi-year deal, when he re-upped with the club on Monday. After being drafted in the second round out of UCLA in 2015, Kendricks has led the Vikings in total tackles in each of his first three seasons.

The only other player in franchise history who's accomplished that feat was Rip Hawkins, who did so over his first four years from 1961-64.
