Vikings’ Freeman To Make More Than Ponder And Cassel

In the case of quarterback Josh Freeman, ongoing reports that he’ll be paid $3 million were incorrect.

Per a league source, Freeman will be paid at an annualized rate of just under $3 million, which will work out to actual compensation of $2 million over the rest of the year.

If what he’ll get is $2 million, the annualized rate if $2.83 million.

Over 12 games, it’s still more than the base salaries paid for the full season to Matt Cassel ($1.65 million) and Christian Ponder ($1.289 million). Which means that the Vikings didn’t sign Freeman with a plan to pay him not to play.
