Which NFL immortals almost landed with the Minnesota Vikings during their careers?
During their history as an NFL franchise, the Minnesota Vikings have been the home for a number of players who were eventually inducted into the Pro Football Hall of Fame.
Currently, there are 11 members of the Hall of Fame who spent at least a portion of their professional football career with the Vikings. Some of their most notable inductees include Randy Moss, Cris Carter, Alan Page, Fran Tarkenton, and John Randle.
During the last few decades, Minnesota has had some opportunities to add players to their roster who would eventually go on to be enshrined into the Pro Football Hall of Fame. But for whatever reason, the Vikings ultimately were not able to work out a deal with these future Hall of Famers.
Some of Minnesota’s recent history could have been altered in a big way if they were actually able to land some of the Hall of Fame talent they were going after. So who were some of these players that almost ended up joining the Vikings before their eventual induction in Canton?
