The Vikings and T.J. Hockenson agreed to terms on a contract extension that makes him one of the NFL’s highest-paid tight ends. Hockenson hasn’t participated in training camp while dealing with some ailments and awaiting a new deal. Now he’ll be back in drills and have time to ramp up for Week 1 against the Buccaneers.
Many have surmised that Hockenson's physical setbacks this summer probably had more to do with the contract extension than his back. Now back with the team, there is no reason to be concerned about a possible holdout, as fantasy drafters should continue to view him as a top-five option.
