How Much Will The Top Free Agent Offensive Linemen Cost?

How Much Will The Top Free Agent Offensive Linemen Cost?

The Vikings will be in the o-line market in a few weeks. When free agency kicks off in a couple of weeks, you can bet that the Minnesota Vikings are going to be in the market for offensive linemen to address their greatest weakness. The purple should have plenty of salary cap room, but how much should they expect to spend on some of the top free agents if they choose to get into a bidding war? Over behind the great E$PN paywall, John Clayton has five offensive linemen among his top 25 free agents, and he’s projected what he expects each of them to get when they hit the open...

No compensatory picks for the Vikings

The Vikings did not receive any compensatory draft picks this year. The NFL on Friday afternoon revealed which teams have been awarded the 32 compensatory picks for April’s draft. Unsurprisingly, the Vikings were not one of the 16 teams that received at least one bonus selection, which can now be traded for the first time in NFL history. Which teams receive these comp picks is determined by a secret formula developed by the NFL Management Council that the NFL says is “based on salary, playing time and postseason honors.” To simplify it, if you lose more quality free agents than you...

Rick Spielman gives a little insight on the Vikings' offseason plan

Rick Spielman met with local beat reporters this morning and assured us all that the Vikings have a plan in place for the looming NFL offseason. Unfortunately, Spielman did not share many specifics of that plan with us. But the GM did give some insight on how the Vikings might proceed. The front office and coaching staff spent the past six weeks taking a long look at their roster and then compared their players to the ones who are expected to be available next month in free agency and in April’s draft. While he noted that “everyone gets riled up” if the Vikings don’t make a splash on...

After clearing way at right guard, Vikings have potential options in free agency

The Vikings cut both of last year’s competitors for right guard and enter a healthy free agent market with a clean slate at the position. Brandon Fusco and Mike Harris, both released this month, had started every game for the Vikings at right guard the past two seasons. And, unlike the offense’s prospects to rebuild at tackle, there are a handful of proven options for the Vikings to do so inside. Cincinnati’s Kevin Zeitler, Green Bay’s T.J. Lang and Detroit’s Larry Warford are three starting right guards who could hit the market next month. To sign one, the Vikings would likely...

Report: Slot corner K'Waun Williams to sign with 49ers

The Vikings looked into free agent cornerback K’Waun Williams, but he’ll sign with the San Francisco 49ers, according to NFL Media. The 25-year-old Williams’ free agent tour didn’t make it to Minnesota before agreeing to a deal in San Francisco. The ex-Browns cornerback also reportedly had interest from the Lions, Jets and Dolphins, among others. Williams (5-9, 183 pounds) started two seasons in the slot for Cleveland before his release last summer during a two-game suspension for refusing to play in a preseason game. He didn’t play last season due to an ankle injury requiring...

The top 5 players the Cowboys regret passing on in 2015 draft: from a trio of Vikings to a dynamic safety

The Cowboys, like everyone else, live with regret. We take a look at the players they probably wish they hadn't passed on in recent drafts. Here is the 2015 edition of lament:5. Stefon Diggs, WR, Maryland / Drafted 146th overall by the Minnesota Vikings / Good receivers can be found in the fifth round, even though the Devin Street Experience may have created the impression that they can't. Diggs offers the latest evidence of that. In his rookie season, he led the Vikings in catches (52) and receiving yards (720). He also had four touchdown receptions. Even without QB Teddy Bridgewater, his...

Vikings' Pat Shurmur: This offseason will be critical for Laquon Treadwell

By the time Vikings rookie receiver Laquon Treadwell was up to speed and healthy enough, Sam Bradford and Pat Shurmur had taken full control of the offense. Treadwell, the 23rd-overall pick in last year’s draft, didn’t earn enough playing time in practice or games to build a connection with the Vikings’ new quarterback. “That connection between the quarterback and skill position players is really important,” Shurmur said last week. “And that chemistry is really built in the offseason when you get the chance to slow it down, run the individual routes in the concepts.” After...
