There are still some former Minnesota Vikings in free agency who shockingly haven't been signed yet.

Free agency is one of the toughest times in the NFL. Players who have contributed to teams like the Minnesota Vikings in the past could now struggle to find a new team to take advantage of their talents for the upcoming season.

Fan favorites who were previously Pro Bowl or even All-Pro caliber talents have to wait to see if the right deal can come around whether that means filling a specific role or accepting that they may not get the playing time they used to.

Some older players might be slowing down while young players are hoping for another opportunity to prove themselves. Others may be holding out for for a payday or a chance to chase a Super Bowl. No matter the reason, there are still familiar names available in free agency.

Here are 11 players who are formerly Minnesota Vikings but still looking to be signed for the 2023 NFL season. It's a bit surprising these guys haven't been scooped up yet, but there is still time for them to find a new team before the league kicks off this year.
