Which Minnesota Vikings players might not be back with the team in 2024 for salary cap reasons?

The job of an NFL general manager isn't easy. Assembling the most talent possible on a roster without jeopardizing future draft capital while staying within the salary cap is a huge challenge for every team, not just the Minnesota Vikings.

Every year, some players are let go due to their salary cap hits not fitting future plans for the franchise. Last season, some big names like Eric Kendricks, Adam Thielen, and Dalvin Cook made their exits.

This year, several players could be in a similar situation. A big salary cap hit with a lower guaranteed money amount means the player could be released for some relief to be able to distribute the funds elsewhere.

At least these five players are bound to have their names brought up as possible releases to clear some salary cap space for the 2024 NFL season. Let's take a look at these Minnesota Vikings players who might or might not be salary cap casualties.
