The start of free agency for the Minnesota Vikings has been headlined by their losses so far. Dalvin Tomlinson, Eric Kendricks and Patrick Peterson all signed elsewhere on Monday as the team embraces a changing of the guard.

On Tuesday, though, Minnesota was able to retain a key free agent.

NFL Network reports the Vikings have agreed to a new deal with center Garrett Bradbury. He's now locked down for three years and a total value of just $15.75 million.

Getting a starter on the offensive line for an AAV of a little over $5 million is a major bargain for the team no matter how you slice it. Bradbury's also coming off of a career year, earning his best overall (70.2) and run-blocking grade (72.4) from ProFootballFocus since entering the league.

Of course, Bradbury's 2022 campaign ended on a sour note, as a back injury forced the fourth-year pro to miss five games at the end of the regular season. He also didn't play as well as fans would've hoped during Minnesota's stunning Wild Card loss to the New York Giants, but an offseason to get healthy could be all he needs to continue his upward trajectory.
