The Minnesota Vikings made some big moves in free agency, but which ones will pay off the most?
Putting together a plan for success is where most NFL teams fall short. Franchises like the Minnesota Vikings are challenged every year to assemble a roster full of talented players and give them the coaching staff and tools to succeed.
There are several ways to accomplish this improvement. Whether it is signing free agents, making trades, or allowing star players to leave, the tough decisions rest on the shoulders of the team’s front offices.
All this has to be done while maintaining a top coaching staff, solid locker room, and keeping the salary cap in order. This is a tough balance for any general manager to handle and mistakes can often be made that result in a disaster that sets the team’s back or pushes them out of a playoff window.
Let’s take a look at the five best moves the Minnesota Vikings made this offseason that should help the team return to the playoffs during the 2020 NFL season and possibly even push them deeper into the postseason.
