Which young players signed to reserve/future contracts have a chance to make the Minnesota Vikings roster for the 2020 season?

The Minnesota Vikings have started constructing their summer roster for the 2020 NFL season. Before free agency begins in March, teams can sign current practice squad or unrestricted free agents who were not on a roster to end the 2019 season and the Vikings have begun adding players to their offseason roster.

Earlier this week, Minnesota signed former Oregon and CFL wide receiver Bralon Addison. Addison joins two other former Oregon Ducks on the Vikings future roster; Tony Brooks-James and Dillon Mitchell.

There are 10 players signed to future contracts in total as of right now. There is no limit to the number of players a team can sign to a future deal. However, NFL teams must stay under 90 total players at the start of the new league year.

Free agency is set to open on March 18 with negotiations allowed to begin on March 16th. Minnesota is strapped for cash and will have a lot of tough decisions to make prior to the start of the 2020 season. Roster cuts are almost certainly in the plans. Several veterans could be looking for new homes at the start of next season.

In order to save money, the Vikings probably need contributions from players on cheap contracts. Could any of their players on future deals step up and make an impact in 2020? With a number of considerable options who have professional experience, Minnesota just might get lucky and find some help.

Which of these players can crack the 2020 roster and contribute every Sunday? Here are a few that could potentially make a name for themselves this summer.
