6 free-agent offensive tackles the Vikings could sign in 2021
By Nik Edlund
Cameron Fleming is another tackle the Vikings should kick the tires on during free agency. He’s been starting games in the NFL since 2014 and he is a huge beast of a human measuring in at 6-foot-6 and 320 pounds. Fleming brings solid technique and great overall power to the table and he would be an upgrade from a depth standpoint for Minnesota.
Fleming is coming off the most productive season of his NFL career as he stepped in and started all 16 games for the Giants at right tackle. His run blocking was better than his pass protection, as he did allow six sacks. But some of those were because of young Daniel Jones not getting rid of the football as quickly as he should have.
Fleming would be a solid pick-up as a backup to Brian O’Neill for next season. He provides veteran depth over an inexperienced option like Oli Udoh and he would be an asset opening up holes in the running game. He also would be cost-friendly as he will likely get interest at those one-year prove-it deals, and shouldn’t have an overly hot market.
