1. Anthony Harris, safety
Anyone reading this list should have known Anthony Harris would be on the top of this list. He has been an absolute gem to pair with Harrison Smith and cemented his place among the NFL’s elite by tying two other defenders as the 2019 interception leader.
Harris may have only been a starter for two years for the Vikings, but his consistency and playmaking ability over those two seasons should make him the absolute top priority for the Minnesota Vikings this offseason.
In fact, after the team does everything they can to free up salary cap by releasing, restructuring, or extending current player contracts, the first thing they should do is put a healthy offer on the table for Harris to let him know the team wants him around.
To make matters worse, both Harris’ backups (Andrew Sendejo and Jayron Kearse) are free agents, meaning that if the Vikings fail to bring back Harris or one of those individuals that there will be a new starter in the Minnesota secondary.
Which players do you think the Minnesota Vikings would be wise to bring back for the 2020 NFL season? And who do you think the team should let walk this offseason? Let us know in the comments section!
