The Minnesota Vikings tight end Visanthe Shiancoe still has two years left on his current contract with the team, but he is already making effort to get a contract extension. Perhaps he just believes that early preparation is better than arguing for the extension shortly before the current contract expires.
Recently always wearing his favorite uniform to show his expectation of the starting quarterback’s return, Shiancoe himself is not expecting the team to agree on extending his contract in near future. He and his camp are talking with Vikings but that does not necessarily mean a deal will be in the works soon, and many people believe that Shiancoe is not going to get anything done before the end of 2010 season. What is more likely to happen could be that he will only get a new contract after a new CBA is hammered out.
While the Vikings take Shiancoe’s contract extension as long shot, they are feeling much more pressing on contract negotiation with another player, running back Adrian Peterson, who has only one year left on his current contract.
