To clear room for Jake Long under the salary cap, the Vikings reduced the salary of guard Mike Harris, who's been on the non-football illness list since training camp. Harris was guaranteed $500,000 for this season, and now only carries a cap figure of $1.5 million, according to NFLPA records. That includes $1 million in likely-to-be-earned incentives based on playing time, meaning Harris' cap number will drop further at the end of the season. Teams are not required to pay players on the non-football injury or illness lists, and writing down Harris' contract cleared $970,586 of cap space, which allowed the Vikings to absorb Long's $423,529 cap hit. They currently have $591,491 in available cap space.
