After releasing three players on Friday to create almost $20 million in cap space, what else could the Minnesota Vikings do to add more spending money before free agency begins?
Before Friday, it didn’t seem like the Minnesota Vikings were going to have much money to work with this offseason to help them improve their roster.
But then the Vikings went and made the tough decisions to release Xavier Rhodes, Linval Joseph, and David Morgan on Friday. The moves freed up almost $20 million for Minnesota and they are now looking at having almost $21 million in cap space when free agency begins on March 18.
With a number of improvements that need to be made to their roster before next season, the Vikings could still be looking for other ways to free up more money before free agency starts.
$21 million is enough to make some minor adjustments and sign a draft class, but if Minnesota wants to contend for a championship in 2020, they’re probably going to need to create even more cap space.
So what are some of the options the Vikings possibly have to free up some more money as they head into this year’s free agency period?
