Wednesday’s edition power trip morning show, kfan Mark Rosen noted as the program ended, “Keep your eye on what’s happening to Justin Jefferson over the next 48 hours.”

He also hinted that the news would be beneficial for the fans and nothing strange or unexpected would happen.

Rosen is highly trusted, having been a part of the Minneapolis media market for decades. He is not known for a ‘hot take’ or a chance to shake it off. In that respect, the Jefferson tidbit at the end of the show has to be considered believable and meaningful. And why wouldn’t it? The Vikings have advertised their intention to offer Jefferson a long-term contract for the entire season. Rosen’s comment is only fruitful in that sense.

Vikings Head Coach Kevin O’Connell talked to pro football talk earlier this month and explained the status of Jefferson’s extension talks, “I don’t know if I’ll put a timeline on it. All I know is that we’re waiting for Justin to play here for a long time.” . He has significantly impacted our organization in so many positive ways on and off the field. I hope when we are done with this, and we can move forward knowing that Justin is going to be here for the long haul, And we’ll get it done.

“Justin knows. His representation knows exactly how we feel about him. We’ll work through this process through the rest of this spring into summer, and then if we can do anything, I’ll Nobody could be more excited about that, and we’ll be looking forward to seeing what Justin does in year two on this offense,” the Minnesota captain said.

Don’t look now, but Jefferson and the Vikings are absolutely in ‘spring into summer’ territory. Yatha – this very moment.

And on Tuesday – the day before the Roseanne revelation – O’Connell revisited The Jefferson-expansion matter, “It’s one of the things we’ve had a very good conversation throughout the offseason, a lot of it will remain between Justin and I. It’s waiting to be here when he decides to come up.” And I know his teammates will be excited about it.

Since joining the Vikings in 2020, Jefferson leads the NFL in receiving yards, each receiving yard mark in a player’s first three seasons (or XXX games of a career), and single-handedly. Season receiving yards and receptions are Vikings records previously held by Randy. Moss and Chris Carter. He’s also a three-time All-Pro, not bad for a player’s first three seasons.

His deal – probably in the next 48 hours – should net $30 to $35 million per season.
