5. Marcus Sherels, special teams

One of the most overlooked parts of a football team is special teams. A big play on a return or key tackle can often be a difference maker when it comes to a win or a loss each and every week in the NFL.

Marcus Sherels isn’t only known as a return man, but his ability to work well in coverage make him a huge asset which the team has enjoyed since he made his Vikings debut in 2010 after working his way up from the team’s practice squad.

While it’s true that Sherels isn’t quite known for his work as a cornerback, Minnesota currently has a strong stable of players at that position. However, if needed, Sherels is capable of going into the game to perform these duties.

Last year, Sherels had a salary cap hit of $1.4M for the Vikings and paying that to have him return to the team seems like a fair price. Once the dust settles a bit more on free agency, expect him to return home to Minnesota.
