Announced last week on the Baltimore coast, Za’Darius Smith will play well in purple next year, but not for the Ravens. The pass rusher, recently released by the Packers, will join the Vikings, according to NFL Media. The contract is for 3 years and 42 million dollars, an amount that could reach 47 million with bonuses. That’s a year less and $7 million more than he previously accepted from the Ravens.
He would have decided to change his tune after seeing the big contracts signed by Von Miller with the Bills and Chandler Jones with the Raiders in the same position as him. Well it took him since his contract in Minnesota will last one year less for $ 7 million more than he had previously accepted with the Ravens.
Za’Darius Smith agreed to terms with the Minnesota Vikings, per source.
