Possible Vikings RB Replacement No. 5

Zack Moss (Indianapolis Colts)

Another option in free agency, Indianapolis Colts running back Zack Moss showed some flashes of brilliance that could open the eyes of a team like the Minnesota Vikings who need a running back as part of a committee.

Moss has only started 11 games in his four NFL seasons but has seen action in 53 games. Last season, he started eight games for the Colts and had 793 yards and five scores on the ground, with 27 catches for 192 yards and two more scores.

Expected to earn approximately $4.6 million in 2024, according to Spotrac, the 5-foot-9 and 205-pound Moss would be a little bit of a gamble for Minnesota since he lacks the consistency of some of the other available options.

Of course, this will all depend on the market for each player in free agency and the allocation of salary cap space. Zack Moss might not be at the top of the list for the Minnesota Vikings, but he should be on the list this offseason.
