EDEN PRAIRIE MN- JUNE 14 Minnesota Vikings cornerback Xavier Rhodes has a laugh during Minnesota Vikings Minicamp

Schefter reported the six-year deal is worth $78.126 million with $41 million guaranteed, while Rapoport noted the contract is a five-year extension, with the added years worth $70 million.

Spielman also spoke to what Rhodes has meant to the Vikings so far and said the personnel department is pleased to re-sign yet another core player.

Rhodes ranked 66 on NFL's Top 100 list, a lineup voted on exclusively by Rhodes' peers across the league. He is, in my opinion, the best (corner) out there.

"A childhood dream", Rhodes said signing the extension, via Minnesota's team website. I'm going to continue to play my ball, be aggressive, be the guy to go out there and play at my best ability to lockdown the best receiver or whatever the coaches want me to do. In 2014, his 18 passes defensed ranked fourth in the National Football League and second in the NFC. "This year I'm trying to take it to a whole new level". "He always told me that I have the athletic ability, but it's the knowledge part that I needed to gain".

The Vikings signed defensive end Everson Griffen to a contract extension last week and gave cornerback Xavier Rhodes a big deal on Sunday in two moves that may be joined by others as the team looks to lock up key members of their defense. "And just have fun, like I've been doing".

Xavier Rhodes will be sticking around for a long time.

Asked what his first purchase with new contract money is going to be, Rhodes said, "It will be diapers, a crib, a lot of baby stuff, you know, that's basically all".
