The Minnesota Vikings need some help at guard for the 2024 NFL season and could look to free agency to add talent.

Many needs will have to be addressed this offseason for the Minnesota Vikings. The big conversation is the quarterback position, along with edge rushers and defensive linemen, but the team needs help in the trenches on offense as well.

The Vikings traded Ezra Cleveland during the season and signed Dalton Risner to take over at left guard, but now Risner is set to become a free agent, and Minnesota will need to look for a starter to take over for him.

Minnesota isn't quite set at right guard either. Although Ed Ingram seemed to improve last season, it still wouldn't be a terrible idea to bring in some competition or depth for the interior of the offensive line.

Let's take a look at six guards who the Minnesota Vikings could take a look at in free agency and discuss why they could be a good fit for the team without breaking the bank or hurting the salary cap too much.
