Former Minnesota Vikings All-Pro defensive tackle John Randle recently gave his thoughts on how successful his former team may be during the 2019 season.

John Randle knows a thing or two about success. During his time with the Minnesota Vikings, the former defensive tackle appeared in a total of 12 playoff games and he was never a part of a team with a losing record.

Unfortunately, Randle was never able to help the Vikings capture the franchise’s first ever Super Bowl win during his career. But he still knows what it takes for a team to put themselves in position for a shot at a championship.

Recently, Randle appeared on the NFL Network show “Good Morning Football” and he offered up some of his expectations for Minnesota’s upcoming season.

"“I look for our offensive line to improve this year and I look for us to go into the playoffs. I’m looking forward to seeing us play better and looking forward to us to have a successful 2019 season.”"

The former Vikings All-Pro pass rusher also echoed the sentiments of many out there and suggested that the team’s offensive line needs to improve in order for Minnesota to move in the right direction next season.

Being someone whose job used to be making life difficult for opposing offenses, Randle knows first-hand how big of an impact a solid offensive line can have on a team’s success.

Vikings general manager Rick Spielman has at least been making moves during the current offseason to try to improve the skill level of the team’s offensive line. Minnesota signed free agent guard Josh Kline back in March and during the NFL Draft last week, they used two of their first four selections on new blockers.

Spielman and the Vikings are hoping that these additions will prove to be enough to help the team meet Randle’s expectations and get back into the playoffs next season.
