4. Jason Pierre-Paul

As someone who was able to help both the New York Giants and Tampa Bay Buccaneers win a Super Bowl after he entered the NFL in 2010, Jason Pierre-Paul knows what it takes to win a championship.

That type of experience is extremely valuable, especially for a team like the Vikings that has a number of young players on its roster who have never tasted victory in the playoffs.

In eight seasons with the Giants and four with the Bucs, Pierre-Paul accumulated a total of 91.5 sacks. He is one of 11 NFL players to rack up at least 90 total sacks from 2010 to 2021. This group of 11 also includes guys like Von Miller, J.J. Watt, and Aaron Donald.


After spending last season with the Baltimore Ravens, Pierre-Paul is currently a free agent. At the age of 34, he's obviously not the same dominant defender that he was a few seasons ago, but he could still potentially add value to a team, even as a situational pass rusher.

The cost of signing him shouldn't be an issue since he made less than $1.5 million with the Ravens last year. So if Minnesota is interested in someone to help replace Marcus Davenport, who also has championship experience, Pierre-Paul could be their guy.
