Since free agency first began in the NFL in 1993, which 15 players were unable to live up to the lucrative contract given to them by the Minnesota Vikings?

Free agency is one of the most exciting parts of each offseason for the Minnesota Vikings and every other team around the NFL. Even if a team doesn’t have a ton of cap space, it’s still incredibly fun to speculate about what moves they could make and the free agents they might sign to improve their roster.

Each free agency period brings back memories of a team’s past signings as well, whether they were good or bad. For the Vikings, they have had their share of both outcomes. For every Linval Joseph, there has also been an Alex Boone.

We’ve already gone over the best free agent signings in Minnesota history, so let’s check out some of the franchise’s worst since free agency first became a thing in the NFL back in 1993.
