Minnesota didn’t have much to spend this offseason, nor did they. After trading Stefon Diggs for picks with Buffalo, they had a lot of draft capital to spend. With that they drafted Justin Jefferson to replace Diggs. They also drafted Jeff Gladney and Cameron Dantzler to help bolster a secondary that started to show struggles last season. This is all in addition to having a pretty solidified roster with names like Adam Thielen and Dalvin Cook. However, the recent moves might not be enough to make up for all of the losses over the last year or two.

Top Vikings Roster Questions of 2020

FAQ

The Vikings finished the 2019 season with a 10-6 record and knocked off the Saints in the first round of the playoffs before losing to the eventual NFC Champion 49ers. Minnesota was one of the NFL's best teams in terms of scoring differential as they scored the 8th-most points per game and allowed the 5th-fewest points per game. Offensive coordinator Kevin Stefanski left to be the head coach of the Browns, but he'll be replaced by former Super Bowl-winning head coach Gary Kubiak. The Vikings had some significant losses this offseason, including their top three cornerbacks from last season in Xavier Woods, Trae Waynes, and Mackensie Alexander. They also traded Stefon Diggs, the disgruntled wide receiver, to the Buffalo Bills. Minnesota had fifteen draft picks to help replenish their roster and got some instant-impact guys in the first two rounds in wide receiver Justin Jefferson and cornerback Jeff Gladney. The team had a quiet offseason overall, but they still have strong odds to make the playoffs this season.

Who is the Highest Paid Vikings Player?

Heading into the 2020-21 season, the Vikings' highest-paid player is Kirk Cousins who has a contract worth $9.5 million guaranteed with an additional $11.5 million in potential bonuses. Minnesota was one of the heaviest running teams in the NFL last season but Cousins is still one of its most important players.

Who Owns the Minnesota Vikings?

The current Vikings' owner is Zygi Wilf, who acquired the team in 2005 along with five partners for $600 million. The team was valued at $2.4 billion by Forbes in 2018. Wilf was born in Berlin, Germany, making him one of three international-born NFL owners.

Who Is the Vikings Head Coach?

Mike Zimmer is entering his seventh season as the Vikings' head coach. He led the team to an above .500 record in five of his first six seasons, making the playoffs three times. Zimmer was previously a defensive coordinator for the Cowboys and Bengals for fourteen seasons.

How Much Cap Space do the Vikings Have?

The Vikings currently have about $12.6 million in available salary-cap space, which is the 18th-most in the NFL. $20 million in dead cap contracts has significantly limited the team's financial flexibility heading into this season. Stefon Diggs is still owed $9 million by the Vikings.

Who Is Going to Replace Stefon Diggs in the Offense?

Stefon Diggs left behind 94 targets in this offense. Adam Thielen will be heavily relied upon as will rookie wideout Justin Jefferson who was drafted in the first round out of LSU. Tight ends Kyle Rudolph and Irv Smith are likely in for an uptick in targets, as well.

Who is the Youngest Player on the Vikings?

Surprisingly, second-year tight end Irv Smith is still the youngest player on the Vikings' roster at 21 years old. He'll turn 22 in early August, however, which will leave a handful of 21-year-old rookies like Justin Jefferson as the team's youngest players.

Who is the Oldest Player on the Vikings?

The oldest player on the Vikings' roster is currently starting punter Britton Colquitt who is 35 years old. He's entering his 11th NFL season and his 2nd with the Vikings, as he previously played for the Broncos and Browns. No other player on the roster is older than 32 years old.
