Replace or bring in competition for pieces that aren’t working

The first step here is to identify areas of weakness from last season. That part of improving the roster should be easy. it is deciding how to go about improving those areas that will be a challenge this offseason.

With such limited draft capital and salary cap space, getting a talented, long-term answer at every position of need is nearly impossible. That might mean finding a stop-gap might just be the way to go for one season.

That means an important position might go to a player who wins a camp battle or the front office gets lucky in the draft and lands a starter at a great value. Sadly, there are numerous holes on the roster that need to be filled.

At the same time, the Minnesota Vikings GM can’t stay laser-focused on current needs or they may miss out on an opportunity for a better player at a different position, making things a bit more complicated.
