The Minnesota Vikings still have some moves they could make in free agency, but there are some players who shouldn’t be on their radar.

Free agency is always a gamble. Teams like the Minnesota Vikings can invest millions of dollars in a player and have that investment blow up in their faces when they end up being a bad fit or not playing up to their past potential.
