Vikings Exercise Fifth-year Option on Trae Waynes
It comes as no surprise that the Minnesota Vikings want to keep Trae Waynes in purple.
The team announced today that they have exercised the fifth-year option of the cornerback's contract.
Exercising the option will cost the team $9 million dollars and will keep Waynes a Viking until at least the end of the 2019 season.
Waynes started all 16 games for the first time in his career during the 2017 season and has appeared in 46 career games, making 25 starts.
For his career, Waynes has recorded five interceptions and 35 passes defensed. The former Michigan State Spartan had a career-high 72 tackles in 2017.
Waynes was the first round pick (overall #11) for the Vikes in the 2016 NFL Draft, he had a shaky start but has got better every season, much like the guy he plays opposite of, Xavier Rhodes.
