The Minnesota Vikings roster is almost set following the conclusion of the NFL Draft, but there are a couple of other moves to be made before the 2020 season.

The Minnesota Vikings have a cool “walking away from explosions” kind of vibe about themselves following the 2020 NFL Draft. With general manager Rick Spielman coming away with a modern-era, NFL-record 15 players in this year’s draft class, the Vikings roster is stocked and seemingly ready to take the next step during the 2020 season.

However, Minnesota’s job this offseason isn’t done. With nearly three months from the scheduled start of training camp, the Vikings can still make some moves to improve their roster and potentially lock players up to long-term deals.

With the possible trade for Trent Williams falling through, Minnesota is expected to have around $8.5 million in salary-cap space after signing their draft picks. Some of that money will likely be handed out in typical Viking fashion to increase cap room and keep their key components on the field happy.

So what could come about in the weeks leading up to training camp? And will training camp happen on time? In our latest bold predictions, we take a look at this and what could happen during Minnesota’s virtual offseason.
