What should Minnesota Vikings fans still be worried about for the 2020 season?
This offseason has been about change for the Minnesota Vikings. This year, the Vikings roster has experienced more turnover than arguably any other year since Mike Zimmer became the team’s head coach in 2014.
Gone are the longtime veterans like Linval Joseph, Stefon Diggs, Trae Waynes, and Xavier Rhodes. In their place, Minnesota will be relying on a lot of youth and inexperience to get the job done during the upcoming season.
The Vikings seem to still have plenty to look forward to for 2020. But there are also a number of worries to still have about Minnesota’s chance for success next season.
What are the remaining worries for the 2020 Minnesota Vikings?
On the latest episode of Bleeding Purple, an attempt was made to try and figure out what people should still be worried about when it comes to the Vikings at this point in the offseason.
One worry that was brought up that never seems to go away is the play of Minnesota’s offensive line. This has been a never-ending issue for the Vikings and something that the team has struggled to fix during the last few years despite putting some actual effort into improving the unit.
This year’s young secondary was also mentioned as something Minnesota should be worried about. Rookie corners tend to struggle during their first season or two with the Vikings and the team can’t really afford to let some of their younger cornerbacks watch from the sidelines in 2020 like they would have been able to during the last few years.
Overall depth was the last worry about Minnesota in 2020 that was discussed. The Vikings have some of the best starters in the entire NFL at a number of positions. However, it won’t be pretty if guys like Harrison Smith, Eric Kendricks, or Danielle Hunter have to miss any time next season due to injury.
Hopefully, for the Vikings, none of these worries end up affecting how they perform in 2020. If they do though, it could turn out to be a very long year in Minnesota.
