Jamaal Charles – RB
The top two running back spots on the Vikings’ current depth chart are set with Dalvin Cook and Latavius Murray. However, figuring out their who their third back will be in 2018 is a little more complicated for Minnesota.
Right now, the job is between Mack Brown and three undrafted rookies. Charles is still available and he could provide more than just his abilities to make plays in the open field.
Like Cook, Charles has suffered a torn ACL during his NFL career (twice, actually). The veteran running back could possibly offer Cook some tips from his past recovery experiences and direct Minnesota’s young rusher down the correct path to greatness.
In addition to his knowledge about injury recovery, Charles could still have some worth in the Vikings’ offense in 2018 too. He has always been a solid option as a pass-catching running back and this skill of his could add another wrinkle to Minnesota’s offensive scheme.
