There are some free agents who could help the Minnesota Vikings as they fight to earn a spot in the playoffs this season.

It's crazy to think that the Minnesota Vikings started the season with an 0-3 record, lost their quarterback for the rest of the season, and are still without their star wide receiver Justin Jefferson but still have a decent chance to be a playoff teams.

Trading for running back Cam Akers from the Rams turned out to be a boost to the offense until his season ended due to an Achilles tendon injury and trading for quarterback Josh Dobbs has looked like a smart move so far.

Sometimes, getting new talent on a roster that is already competitive can help to take things to the next level. It doesn't always have to be a starting-caliber player as long as they can contribute, they can make a difference.

Let's take a look at five players who are currently free agents who shouldn't cost too much but could help the Minnesota Vikings continue a strong playoff push through the second half of the 2023 NFL season.
