K.J. Osborn - WR

Minnesota's decision to reportedly re-sign Brandon Powell on Tuesday likely rules out the possibility of K.J. Osborn returning to the purple and gold this year. But Osborn should still be able to find somewhere to play for the 2024 season.

In each of the last three years, he's been able to finish with at least 45 catches, 540 receiving yards, and three touchdown receptions. Osborn has also done all of this while not being the top option in a Vikings offense that has featured guys like Justin Jefferson, T.J. Hockenson, Adam Thielen, and Jordan Addison.

Wherever he ends up, he would probably like to sign with a team that will give him the opportunity to compete for one of the top spots on their 2024 wide receiver depth chart.

Anthony Barr - LB

Anthony Barr returning to play for Minnesota was a fun little story this past season. But the headline about him rejoining the team that drafted him in 2014 turned out to be more exciting than anything he was able to do out on the actual field for the Vikings in 2023.

Minnesota signed Barr in the middle of November, and he wound up bouncing back and forth between the team's active roster and practice squad during the Vikings' final seven games of the season.

The four-time Pro Bowl linebacker was on the field for a grand total of 60 snaps with Minnesota in 2023, and he only managed to notch one tackle.

Barr will be 32 on March 18, and after an uneventful performance last season, it seems possible that his tenure with the Vikings during the 2023 campaign will turn out to be the final time we see him on an NFL field.
