Minnesota Vikings free agent signing No. 6

David Quessenberry, offensive line

The journey that David Quessenberry has taken in the NFL is an inspirational one. His return to the NFL and determination to get back to playing offensive tackle at a high level is a great story and one that should be admired.

Outside of the feel-good story, Quessenberry has seen action in 13 games for the Minnesota Vikings, starting two contests. He has also been a part of numerous special teams plays this year. Not too shabby for a guy who was signed for a little over $1 million.

Garrett Bradbury, center

Having a starting-caliber center is important in today's NFL. Bringing back Garrett Bradbury was one of the tough decisions the Minnesota Vikings had to make after allowing him to test free agency since he was not given his fifth-year option.

Bradbury came back to Minnesota on a three-year deal worth $15.75 million. He is having debatably his best season as a pro this year and this signing is starting to look like a fantastic signing for the team going forward.

Brandon Powell, wide receiver

The Minnesota Vikings had a huge problem with punt returners last year. This year, that job belonged to Brandon Powell and although he hasn't been amazing as a return man, his consistency has put the Minnesota Vikings special teams unit in a better position.

Not only that, but Powell has been solid as a receiver as well. This season, he has career high numbers in receptions (25) and receiving yards (269). That makes him well worth the $1.2325 million this season.
