The deal, first reported by the NFL Network, runs through the 2020 season with a maximum value of $4 million. Coach Mike Zimmer confirmed the agreement after practice Monday.
McDermott is entering his second season with the Vikings, after unseating last year veteran Cullen Loeffler, who then was the longest-tenured player on the team.
