Who are some of the free agents the Minnesota Vikings have missed out on during what has been an offseason full of change for the franchise?

Shortly before free agency began this offseason, some were beginning to wonder if the Minnesota Vikings were even going to have enough money to sign their rookie class, let alone fill the holes on their roster.

But after Everson Griffen opted out of his deal and the Vikings made the tough decisions to release Xavier Rhodes, Linval Joseph, and Josh Kline, they were able to free up a substantial amount of money.

Minnesota’s decision to extend Kirk Cousins for another two years and trade Stefon Diggs also cleared up some more cap space and the team entered the start of free agency with a decent amount of money to spend.

Despite their ability to go after some of the most talented free agents available this year, the Vikings put most of their focus into re-signing a bunch of their reserves from 2019. Instead of just bringing back a number of their own guys to maintain their depth, Minnesota could have added some pretty affordable free agents who would have probably had a bigger impact on their chance for success in 2020.

So of the free agents who have already been signed this offseason, who are some of the guys the Vikings likely wish they would’ve landed after it turned out they were actually affordable?
