Vikings pick up fifth-year option on contract of CB Waynes

Vikings pick up fifth-year option on contract of CB Waynes

After struggling to break into the starting lineup in his first two years, Waynes started all 16 games for the Vikings as he played a significant part in their run to the NFC Championship Game.

The Vikings on Monday picked up the fifth-year contract option on cornerback Trae Waynes on Monday.

Waynes was named First Team All-Big Ten while playing at MSU in 2014. He started all 16 games last season.

But that's just me arguing something that needn't be.

Peyton Reed , director of both Ant-Man films, shared some details about the character in an interview with Entertainment Weekly . Early in the trailer he exacts some revenge on a bad guy in a auto crash scene filmed at Forsyth and Marietta streets downtown.

The Vikings added more cornerback depth behind Waynes, Rhodes, and Mackensie Alexander during the recently-concluded National Football League draft. He has played in all but two games, including the postseason, through his first three seasons.

For his career, Waynes has five interceptions and 35 passes defensed. He had a career-high three interceptions in 2016. With the Vikings facing Aaron Rodgers and Matthew Stafford four times a year, it makes sense that the Vikings would invest in their corners the way they have even if it's been at the detriment of the offensive line.

The 25-year-old Waynes has proved to be durable early on in his career. The only other players older than Newman are all kickers or punters, including Adam Vinatieri (45), Phil Dawson (43), Matt Bryant (43 on May 29), Shane Lechler (42 on August 7) and Sebastian Janikowski (40).
