Drafted No. 14 overall in 2018 by the New Orleans Saints, defensive end Marcus Davenport has yet to reach his full ceiling on defense.
Marcus Davenport Salary
Davenport signed with the Minnesota Vikings during 2023 free agency. He signed a one-year, $13,000,000 contract with Minnesota, including an $8,500,000 signing bonus, $10,000,000 guaranteed, and an average annual salary of $13,000,000.
Marcus Davenport Cap Hit
The 26-year-old carries a $5,964,705 cap hit in 2023.
Marcus Davenport Potential Extension
There’s a lot of unfilled potential surrounding Davenport. His draft selection demonstrates he was once a top prospect, but he never realized that potential during his five seasons with the Saints.
Davenport’s new one-year deal with the Vikings is essentially a “prove it” contract. The potential has always been there, but it’s time for the 26-year-old to start putting up results.
With free agency approaching for Davenport again in 2024, multiple comparable players warrant looking at. Myles Garrett, DeMarcus Lawrence, Leonard Williams, and Frank Clark all share similar numbers to Stewart at this point in their careers.
