(Eagan, MN) — The Vikings longest-tenured player is staying in purple for another season. Safety Harrison Smith agreed to take a pay cut to stay with Minnesota yesterday. Smith will make eight-million dollars next season, a cut from the 15-point-three million dollars he was originally going to be paid. The Vikings reportedly allowed Smith to gauge interest from other teams before he decided to stay in the Twin Cities. Smith was drafted by the Vikings in the first round of the 2012 NFL Draft, and he’s made the Pro Bowl six times during his tenure.
