Who are some Minnesota Vikings players that could take a step backward with the team during the upcoming 2020 season?

The Minnesota Vikings are done with free agency, the draft, and they have even finished up their first virtual organized team activity. They are gearing up for the start of the 2020 season whenever that might be.

This is generally a time of great excitement for the Vikings and their fans. Coaches and front office folk are excited to see how the new free-agent acquisitions and rookies fit in on the current roster.

Minnesota’s depth chart will begin to reveal itself in the coming months as players are cut and others make jumps up the ladder.

Some Vikings players could take a step backward in 2020. Perhaps it’s because their play is declining or maybe the competition at their position has increased, which could lead to a decrease in opportunities.

So who are five players from Minnesota’s current roster who could see their playing time, or production take a dip during the upcoming season?
