Was not picking up Andrew Sendejo’s option a mistake?

It is strange to think that Andrew Sendejo has been the starter for the Minnesota Vikings for four years and had been with the team for eight seasons before his option was declined and he landed in Philadelphia.

The last three seasons in purple and gold were good as far as PFF standards go. His defensive grade of 80.9 in 2017 was stellar and he was at 64 or better the previous years. He was a solid, hard-hitting commodity for the franchise who is now gone.

The biggest reason for Sendejo’s exit is the money from his contract. However, he also was disciplined often by the NFL for his big hits and taunted the league with hats and the #FreeDejo thing. But was gaining the money and losing a possible distraction worth it when he has been so solid?

Secondary question: Is Anthony Harris the answer at safety?

Anthony Harris graded out at an impressive 89 from PFF, with grades of 88.4 in tackling and 87.1 in coverage. Plus, three of his four seasons in Minnesota have seen him grade out above 75. But now he appears to be the team’s starter opposite Harrison Smith, and hopefully, he can stay at this level for the 2019 season.
