Which Minnesota Vikings players may have already reached their performance peak?

The stakes could not be much higher for the Minnesota Vikings in 2021. Missing the playoffs by the skin of their teeth left everyone associated with the organization hugely disappointed, especially considering their stark turnaround in fortunes following a 1-5 start that was simply too much to bounce back from.

One cannot accuse the Vikings of standing still this offseason in pursuit of an instant playoff return. They were extremely active in free agency with limited financial resources available and backed this up with what appears to be a solid group of rookies from the draft.

This is just the first step on the road to redemption for Minnesota and their head coach Mike Zimmer. What comes next will be more important and has the potential to shape the long-term future of the franchise.

Some will be counted on more than others, but here are six Vikings players who may have already peaked in terms of production.
