1 of 11

NFL fans love to play general manager.  They enjoy playing with the idea of releasing players to add free agents, having players restructure, or just plain releasing ineffective players.  Fans of the Minnesota Vikings are no different.

Coming into the 2015 NFL season, the Minnesota Vikings will have some tough decisions to make.  They will have to cut, sign,  and restructure players to devise the best possible 53 man roster to put on the field and represent the team.  Some of the decisions will probably be unpopular.  Other decisions might be absolute head scratchers.  But they will all originate from the front office of the team.

For the purpose of discussion, I wanted to present the top 10 salaries for the Minnesota Vikings during the 2015 season before free agency or any other signings are made.  This should open a dialogue between fans as to what the best course of action for some of these players would be.

All salaries, cap hits, and guaranteed money are taken from Spotrac.com.  So let’s get the countdown rolling!
