The Vikings have until the end of the day today to officially exercise the fifth-year options for their three 2013 first-round draft picks — Sharrif Floyd, Xavier Rhodes and Cordarrelle Patterson. But this morning, they informed those players about their intentions, if they hadn’t already.

Rhodes has been told his option will be exercised, according to his agent, Sunny Shah. That will keep Rhodes under team control through 2017. Floyd’s option will also be picked up, according to NFL Network.

Patterson's will not be, meaning he will be a free agent after this season.

Rhodes, entering his third year as a Vikings starting cornerback, will make $8,026,000 under his fifth-year option in 2017, per CBS Sports.

The fact that Floyd has missed five full games and parts of a few others due to injuries may have given the Vikings some pause. But when healthy, Floyd has usually played well. The 2017 fifth-year option salary for a defensive tackle drafted between picks No. 11 and 32 is $6,757,000.

And then there is Patterson, who did not play on offense at all down the stretch in 2015 and has 863 career receiving yards through three NFL seasons. The writing was on the wall for Patterson even before the Vikings drafted Mississippi's Laquon Treadwell in the first round. His fifth-year option figure would have been $7,915,000, which is too much for a kickoff returner. The Vikings have told Patterson they won’t pick his option up, according to a source. They'll make him prove it as a wide receiver in 2016.
