    Minnesota Vikings linebacker E.J. Henderson, not long ago considered a second-round bust, has blossomed in the team's Tampa 2 defense, earning a five-year extension worth more than $25 million, including $10 million in bonuses.

    Henderson, a fourth-year pro from Maryland, already has 108 tackles in 2006, a career high.

    Perhaps more amazing than Henderson's turnaround is the fact that the new agreement was reached between the Vikings and agent Kevin Poston. Previously known for making ridiculously high demands and then forcing his clients to languish on the shelf while other players got paid the big dollars, Poston now sounds almost, gulp, reasonable.

    "There really was no reason not to [do the deal], Poston said. "They liked him, he liked them, the number was fair. . . . What E.J. was seeking was a fair market value deal."

    Henderson was scheduled to become an unrestricted free agent after the 2006 season.
