ESPN's Courtney Cronin reports that running back Latavius Murray has agreed to restructure his contract with the Vikings. As Cronin notes, the majority of Murray's contract for 2018 would've been guaranteed on Friday, so the move gives Minnesota more flexibility in free agency.
After signing Kirk Cousin on Thursday, the Vikings were $26 million under the cap, according to Spotrac, so they're now likely a little closer to $30 million.
That's still a significant chunk of money to sign multiple free agents with, one of them possibly being defensive tackle Sheldon Richardson, who was picked up by the Vikings in a private jet Thursday.
As for Murray, Vikings radio play-by-play guy Paul Allen called him the best pass-blocking running back the Vikings have had in his 16 years announcing games.
Murray finished with 842 yards and 8 touchdowns last season despite only playing regularly in 12 games.
