Which 2021 free agents would be amazing additions to the Minnesota Vikings?

For a team that didn’t qualify for the playoffs in the 2020 season, the Minnesota Vikings don’t have a ton of glaring needs this year.

The Vikings need to improve the overall depth of their roster before the 2021 campaign. But with all of the guys they have coming back from injury, a bunch of their needs are expected to be filled with these returning players.

Still, Minnesota will need to eventually turn to free agency to fill some of the remaining holes on their roster. The Vikings aren’t expected to have very much cap space this year, so they probably won’t be able to add any of the high-priced free agents.

But what if the salary cap didn’t exist? What if Minnesota had unlimited funds to spend on whoever they wanted to in order to improve the weakest parts of their roster?

With this in mind, who are some of the free agents the Vikings would target to improve their chances of getting back to the playoffs in 2021?
