Mackensie Alexander, Cornerback

After flashing a few times during his rookie contract in Minnesota, Mackensie Alexander returned to Minnesota after a year with the Bengals and wasn’t as effective as the team hoped. He will likely get another look somewhere since he’s only 28 years old and has shown some past potential.

Dede Westbrook, Wide receiver/returner

I admit that I bought into some Dede Westbrook hype when he signed with Minnesota entering the 2021 season. As a receiver and return man, there was hope he could be a contributor since he had such bad quarterback play before becoming a Viking. Instead, he had only 10 catches for 68 yards and 8.3 yards per punt return to show for his time in Minnesota.

Wayne Gallman, Running back

Only seeing action in two games for the Vikings in 2021, Wayne Gallman’s time in Minnesota was largely forgettable. The only statistic he had was one kickoff return for seven yards. Considering the depth the Vikings have at running back, it would be shocking to see him return.

Chad Beebe, Wide receiver

Some fans really love the son of Don Beebe, but after missing the entire 2021 season it seems unlikely that he will return for 2022. His 2020 campaign was his best, catching 20 passes for 201 yards and two touchdowns while contributing to special teams. It will be interesting to see what the future holds for Chad Beebe.

Jordan Scott, Defensive tackle

A big man who only saw action during the preseason, Jordan Scott is likely best known for intercepting a pass from Sam Ehlinger of the Colts and then immediately fumbling it on Aug. 21. having a 328-pound defender in the middle will always be interesting to teams, but he still has a lot to prove.

Chris Herndon, Tight end

The trade for Chris Herndon will go down as one of the worst of Rick Spielman’s tenure in Minnesota since he only ended up catching four passes for 40 yards and one touchdown after the team spent a fourth-round pick for his services. He was outplayed by a mile by Tyler Conklin over that time.

Eddie Yarbrough, Defensive end

After spending two seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, Eddie Yarbrough played in eight games and registered only eight tackles and one pressure over that time. He will need to work hard to prove he can contribute to a team if he hopes to suit up for a fifth season in the NFL.
