Mike Daniels (Free Agent)

Mike Daniels is slightly undersized to line up at nose tackle, but he has the talent to do well at the position. Daniels also has a ton of experience going up against teams in the NFC North having played for both the Green Bay Packers and Detroit Lions during his eight-year career.

He actually caused a bunch of trouble for the Vikings in the past when he used to suit up for the Packers. In 12 games against Minnesota since 2013 as a member of Green Bay and Detroit, he racked up 19 tackles (12 for a loss), 19 quarterback hits, and 8.5 sacks.

He’s dealt with some injuries recently, but the Vikings should still look into adding him to their roster given his experience in the division.

If Minnesota is willing to use an undersized Shamar Stephen as their starting nose tackle in 2020, Daniels at 310 pounds is definitely someone they should bring in to compete for the job as well this year.
