The Minnesota Vikings made some tough roster decisions this season and some of those decisions have paid off for the team in a big way.

Many fans expected this to be a rebuilding year for the Minnesota Vikings. Although it is the start of major changes for the franchise, the general manager and coaching staff have been able to keep the team competitive through the process.

Entering Week 15, the Vikings have a winning record despite saying farewell to some veteran players who were eating up a lot of salary cap space in favor of younger, less expensive options who could hopefully become part of the franchise's long-term plans.

Much of the credit for the team's success this year despite several setbacks goes to the decisions the team made when assembling a roster and the way those players have accepted those challenges and rose to the occasion.

Let's take a look at five of the best decisions the Minnesota Vikings made when it comes to putting together their roster for the 2023 NFL season and why those players are helping the franchise during their rebuilding.
