Which current members of the 2021 Minnesota Vikings could be entering their last season in purple and gold?

During the last few years, change has become more frequent for the Minnesota Vikings. These days, the experience level of the players on the Vikings‘ roster is certainly lower than head coach Mike Zimmer would prefer.

This year, Minnesota made the tough decisions to let go of both Riley Reiff and Kyle Rudolph. Which current players on the Vikings’ roster could possibly follow Reiff and Rudolph out the door once the upcoming 2021 season concludes?
