The Minnesota Vikings were eliminated sooner than expected in this year’s playoffs and it adds to an offseason where plenty of tough decisions will be made.

The 2022 season for the Minnesota Vikings ended in disappointment after they were bounced by the New York Giants. A season full of comebacks and one-score victories finally swung the other way, leading to a scenario that Vikings fans know all too well.

But the end of the season is merged with the excitement of the offseason. Over the next six months, the Vikings will do everything they can to get back to where they were next season, but it will come with plenty of questions.

Several veterans will be looking for big deals, and the pending contract extension for Justin Jefferson is one that could shape the NFL for years to come. The task of fixing one of the league’s worst defenses will also be a hot topic and whether the Vikings will stay with Kirk Cousins or seek a quarterback of the future.

Some of the decisions won’t be popular, but they’re the type of decisions that Kwesi Adofo-Mensah was hired to figure out. In this article, we’ll make 10 bold predictions for the 2023 offseason and see what could happen between now and the start of training camp.
