After Rick Spielman and Mike Zimmer spoke at this week’s NFL Scouting Combine, what can be expected from the Minnesota Vikings this offseason?

For the Minnesota Vikings, this offseason is expected to be much different than any of the last few years.

Salary cap space will likely be extremely limited for the Vikings, which will lead to the team having to make some pretty tough roster decisions. Some of the players who have spent the last handful of seasons in Minnesota could be on their way out the door this year.

This week, some of the Vikings’ intentions for this offseason were revealed when head coach Mike Zimmer and general manager Rick Spielman both met with the media at the 2020 NFL Scouting Combine.

Spielman and Zimmer each had their 15 minutes at the podium to take questions from some of the media at the Combine. Both did their best to provide answers to these questions without giving up too much about Minnesota’s plans for the next few months.

However, some of the comments made by Spielman and Zimmer during the Combine actually did help clear up some of the recent thoughts and rumors going on in the heads of Vikings fans.

Now that Minnesota’s general manager and head coach have had their time at the podium during this week’s Combine, what are some of the biggest takeaways from everything they said?
