The Minnesota Vikings may not have gotten as far as they were hoping to in 2019, but they made a good run. After finishing the regular season with a 10-6 record, the Vikings came through with a massive upset in the Wild Card round over the New Orleans Saints. Unfortunately, they could not upset the San Francisco 49ers in the Divisional Round.
Despite the loss in the playoffs, the Vikings can be very happy with their 2019 performance. There are a few holes that Minnesota will have to fill this offseason in free agency and in the 2020 NFL Draft, but they aren’t too far away from serious contention.
Kirk Cousins and the offense looked pretty solid for the most part. There are some holes on the offensive line and the Vikings need a No. 3 wide receiver, but Dalvin Cook finally showed true superstar potential. Adding a couple more pieces should take them over the top on that side of the football.
Defensively, the Vikings have to be a bit worried and disappointed about their production. Xavier Rhodes struggled again in 2019 and Trae Waynes is headed for free agency. Minnesota doesn’t have much money to spend in free agency either.
All of that being said, let’s dive in and take a look at four potential targets the Vikings could look into on the offensive side of the football this offseason.
