As the offseason moves along heading into the 2020 season, here are five possible cuts the Minnesota Vikings could make before the new year begins.
After the Minnesota Vikings were able to get back to the postseason in 2019 after failing to do so the year prior, this offseason will likely be one of the more important offseasons for the franchise in the last few years.
Minnesota, which goes into the offseason sitting in a tough situation when it comes to its salary cap situation, might be looking to shed some contracts prior to the 2020 season kicking off.
The Vikings will aim to shore up a few needs on the team after wrapping up the 2019 regular season schedule with a record of 10-6 overall, which was good enough to finish second in the NFC North behind the Green Bay Packers and resulted in the purple and gold securing the second NFC Wild Card spot.
But before they are able to do that and in order to try and improve various needs on both sides of the ball, Minnesota might had to cut ties with some important players within the organization to give it flexibility to try and continue to improve.
There are a handful of players on both offense and defense that are getting up there in age and also contain some decently sized contracts that could persuade the Vikings to ultimately just cut them before the new year commences.
Especially with its tough salary cap situation going into 2020, one thing is for certain with Minnesota in that it is going to have to make some tough decisions at some point.
With the Vikings front office starting to prepare for who they want to move forward with as an organization and start to look ahead to the 2020 season, there will be some changes in player personnel for Minnesota this offseason.
Before those moves can officially take place, let’s predict and dive into five players who could see themselves cut from the organization before the new year kicks off.
