With the majority of the 2019 offseason over, what have been the best moves made by the Minnesota Vikings over the last few months?

After last year’s exciting events, many figured that the 2019 offseason would be little more on the quiet side for the Minnesota Vikings. However, the Vikings still found ways to keep things interesting during the last few months.

Since Minnesota didn’t have a ton of salary cap space this year, they didn’t make much noise in free agency. But the Vikings were still able to retain one of their best defensive players and also extend one of their top wide receivers.

Most of Minnesota’s notable decisions this offseason had to do with working a bit of salary cap magic in order to keep some of their best performers around for 2019. The Vikings also had themselves a nice haul during this year’s NFL Draft as they were able to add a total of 12 promising rookies.

Minnesota’s offseason highlights didn’t entirely have to do with their roster. The Vikings also made some important coaching changes on the offensive side of the ball that they hope will end up getting them back into the playoffs in 2019.

So out of everything that has gone down during the current offseason for Minnesota, which seven moves of have stood out above the rest?
