Safety first: Smith, Harris are secondary luxury for Vikings

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) No team in the NFC has allocated more salary cap space to the safety position than the Minnesota Vikings, who will rely even more heavily this season on their excellent yet expensive tandem of stalwart Harrison Smith and upstart Anthony Harris.

Their experience in a secondary that suddenly has a startling lack of it ought to be worth the investment for the Vikings and their remodeled defense.

The five-time Pro Bowl pick Smith, now the second-longest-tenured player on the team behind tight end Kyle Rudolph, was delighted by the return of Harris, who was given the franchise tag by the Vikings that prevented him from entering unrestricted free agency.
