There’s no doubt the Minnesota Vikings will be scouring the 2020 free-agent wire for cornerbacks. Who are six corners they could consider signing this offseason?
The Minnesota Vikings once had a very deep and talented group of cornerbacks, but that is no longer the case. The Vikings are going to be hit hard in this area with free agency coming up as their two best corners could leave for deals the Vikings just can’t afford.
Xavier Rhodes is a strong candidate to be cut, thinning out the depth and experience of this group even more. Mike Hughes will be in line to start, but he injured his neck at the end of the 2019 season, so whether or not he’ll be a full go at the start of the 2020 season is anyone’s guess.
Minnesota will need to add corners through the draft and through free agency this year. With the Vikings’ 2020 cap situation not expected to be very favorable, they likely aren’t going to be huge spenders.
Minnesota will only be able to afford guys that either haven’t reached their full potential yet or aging players who are looking for one last shot. So here are six free-agent cornerbacks the Vikings could look at signing this offseason.
