Josh Kline was Minnesota’s starting right guard last season and most felt he did a pretty decent job. Claiming that Kline was the second-best Vikings offensive lineman in 2019 was not a crazy thought to have.
However, Minnesota decided to move on from the veteran blocker this offseason and he’s been a free agent ever since. With Kline still being available, the Vikings would be wise to give him a call in the near future.
He reportedly hasn’t ruled out a return to Minnesota according to the Pioneer Press’ Chris Tomasson back in August. The problem for the Vikings is that they just don’t have a ton of cash to sign someone right now.
OverTheCap.com has Minnesota with just under $2 million in cap space currently and Kline could end up being out of their price range. So unless their former starting right guard is willing to play for the league minimum, the Vikings will probably roll out with someone else at right guard until Pat Elflein can return to the field.
