The Minnesota Vikings could make some surprising decisions about their roster this summer before the 2021 season.

The Minnesota Vikings are a team that really looks to be primed to make a deep playoff run, potentially all the way to the Super Bowl. The front office has done a masterful job assembling depth across the roster and creating competition at just about every position.

Training camp and the preseason will tell a lot about how ready the young players on the roster are ready to contribute and will also give us a good idea of how all the new faces are jelling with their teammates and their roles in the Vikings‘ offense and defense respectively.

These performances will give the coaching staff and the front office a great idea of what 53 players will give the team the best chances of getting over that Super Bowl hump.

This could lead to some surprising decisions about which and how many players to keep at certain positions. So what are some surprising roster decisions Minnesota could make when final cuts are due in a few weeks?
