Sources: Vikings focus on defense, sign Greenard, Van Ginkel, Minnesota-native Cashman

The Minnesota Vikings have reportedly made some major roster moves and lost one key player.

First, a source confirmed to KSTP Sports that the team has reached a deal with pass rusher Jonathan Greenard, formerly of the Houston Texans, to a four-year deal worth $76 million, with $42 million of that being guaranteed. The 26-year-old had 12 1/2 sacks last season.

Additionally, outside linebacker Andrew Van Ginkel is getting a two-year deal worth $20 million to join the Vikings, a source confirmed. The 28-year-old has spent his entire five-year career with Miami and had his best season last year, notching 6 sacks, 58 tackles, 8 passes defended and an interception while playing in all 17 games.

In the third deal of the day, the Vikings are also adding Eden Prairie native and former Gopher Blake Cashman, according to a source. Cashman, 27, played the past two seasons in Houston with Greenard. The linebacker started 13 of the 14 games he played last year, notching 106 tackles, 2 sacks and an interception.

The NFL’s legal tampering period opened late Monday morning — deals will officially be able to be signed starting Wednesday — meaning it could be a very busy next few days for the Vikings.

In addition, offensive tackle David Quessenberry and guard Blake Brandel have also re-signed with the team. KSTP Sports has been told Quessenberry’s new deal is one year and $2 million.

Quessenberry was going to become an unrestricted free agent at the start of the new league year on Wednesday while Brandel would’ve been a restricted free agent.

While Quessenberry had his first season with the team in 2023, he started four times. Meanwhile, Brandel was chosen by the team if the sixth round of the 2020 NFL Draft and has started five times in the past three seasons. As previously reported by KSTP Sports, Brandel was also re-signed in February of last year.
