FOXSports.com has learned that the Vikings have agreed to terms with former Redskins cornerback Fred Smoot on a multi-year, $34 million deal that includes $10.8 million to sign.
Smoot is the third major addition the Vikings have made to their defense, including former Raiders linebacker Napoleon Harris (acquired in the Randy Moss trade) and former Bills defensive tackle Pat Williams (acquired via free agency).

The Redskins had earlier offered Smoot a deal for $10 million to sign, but he was able to better the deal in Minnesota, the team with the best cap position in the NFL entering free agency.

Smoot, who turns 26 in April, had 16 total interceptions in four seasons with the Redskins.

they way over paid this guy , a guy who isnt even in the top 5 CB's

Vikes must love getting that accounting error that gave them like 22 million to spend this offseason. Better tell our guys to double check our receipts.

Better than a couple years ago when in mid season we cut someone because the NFL double checked and we paid like a couple thousand more than the cap so the gave us a penalty fine and someone had to go. That sucked.
