Anthony Harris – S

It was already a pretty big surprise that the Vikings brought Anthony Harris back this year. Most assumed Harris was going to end up signing a big free-agent deal with another team this past offseason, but then Minnesota went and decided to use the franchise tag on him.

Since then, Harris is been involved in a number of trade rumors and his performance on the field has slipped a bit compared to what he was able to do in 2019.

In eight games this season, the Vikings safety has 50 tackles, three pass breakups, and no interceptions. During his first eight matchups in 2019, Harris had 37 tackles, six pass breakups, three interceptions, and one fumble recovery.

Despite him having less impactful plays this year, he should still have a good amount of interest when he hits free agency in 2021. Even if Harris isn’t able to land a deal that pays him more than the $11.4 million he’s making this season, he will still probably end up being too pricey for Minnesota to bring back next year.
