Minnesota Vikings Going Younger

The Minnesota Vikings are going younger this off season in their attempt to catch up with the rest NFC North. Some of the Vikes most experienced starters have contracts and ages that make them candidates for a pay cut - or being cut.

Steve Hutchinson, a former Michigan All-American, is scheduled to make just under $7 million in 2012. This year wraps up as the final installment of a seven-year deal worth as much as $49 million.

Hutchinson said he wouldn't be surprised if the Vikings asked him to redo his deal to stay this season. He also recognized the possibility of being let go before the new league year begins and the free agency opens next month.

Hutchinson's 2011 season ended early, but that wasn't necessarily a negative or detrimental. The Vikings finished 3-13, an embarrassing record for everyone.
