Minnesota Vikings: 15 best free agent acquisitions of all-time
By Adam Carlson
A former second-round draft pick of the Philadelphia Eagles in 1985, Randall Cunningham earned Pro Bowl honors three times while leading the team to a 63-43-1 record as a starter. He stayed there for 11 seasons before being signed by the Vikings.
While he only played in 27 games for the Vikings, starting 23 of them, he had one of the most impressive statistical seasons of his career during the 1998 season. The team went 13-1 with him as a starter, as he threw for 34 touchdowns to only 10 interceptions, compiling 3,704 passing yards along the way.
He earned All-Pro First-Team honors for that season and nearly pushed the Vikings into the Super Bowl. However, at this point, fans of the team don’t need to be reminded of what happened to keep Minnesota from the big game.
Cunningham is the perfect example of having a huge impact in a short time with a franchise. He will be well-remembered for his 1998 season with Minnesota, despite only being with the Vikings for a small time period.
