Which players were the Minnesota Vikings right to move on from during the 2022 offseason?

It was an absolutely fascinating 2022 NFL Draft for everyone associated with the Minnesota Vikings. Exactly in keeping with one of the more eventful offseasons in franchise history.

The complete shift in approach with Kwesi Adofo-Mensah and Kevin O’Connell at the helm was evident. Something that was needed and should give the Vikings a good chance to make a postseason return in 2022.

It’s been interesting to see how things have developed since the 2021 campaign came to a conclusion. But considering how concerning things looked from a financial standpoint just before free agency, things could not have gone much better.

On this topic, we picked out five players the Vikings were absolutely right to move on from during a frantic offseason period so far.

Rashod Hill – OG

Although Rashod Hill was nothing more than a primary backup more often than not in 2021, the Vikings still made the right call by not bringing the veteran back for another go-around.

Hill struggled to find the right consistency throughout his time in Minnesota. The former Southern Mississippi standout turned out in just 342 snaps last season, giving up three sacks and conceding four penalties to secure a dismal 42.7 grade from Pro Football Focus.

This is a testament to how badly Hill adjusted. With a new regime entering the fold, going in a different direction was almost guaranteed.
