I could see the Vikings stacking up a lot of comp picks in 2021

Ham and Wilson are both RFAs, they will be back regardless.  The other bolded, I'd do what I can to bring them back...the rest are expendable.

Along with the news of Jayron Kearse basically wanting out of Minnesota. The DB room is getting thin. 
 

Im sure Sendejo will be affordable enough to bring back, everyone basically thinks we should cut Rhodes, Waynes most likely will bring in over $9.5M this year, spottrac estimates Harris to bring in over $13M, it will be an interesting offense for our GM, Coaches, and money guys.

Which are RFA and what is our current cap space?

Was working on that as you posted.

I’d make Alexander, Griffen and Harris my top priorities. I’d pay for them by cutting Rhodes, Joseph and Stephen for starters. 

Also, Bailey and Colquitt need to be brought back. When was the last time we had a good punter and kicker.

One of the backup OL, Hill or Dozier would be nice to have too.

I am hoping for some nice comp picks for Waynes, Kearse and Weatherly.

The Vikes are too broke to sign any free agents unless they want to let all of them go and make a splash elsewhere (Chris Jones).

These are the only I'm interested in keeping, depending on price.

How did we get so buried in the cap?

I thought Brzenzski was a genius?

The core of the team is no longer on rookie contracts as was the case 2-3 years ago.

The Barr and Cousins contracts were particularly difficult to swallow.

I really never got the Barr deal. It's just so much money, and the crunch was coming......

The production never justified the contract. He’s paid to be a difference maker and we still haven’t seen it show up in the form game changing plays. He solid. Solid shouldn’t cost around $15m.

Let these free agents go. None are great playets we need to pay for. Would like Colquitt and Bailey back but some of these guys are way past their time here. The great teams make the tough decisions. We need money to improve the offense. I trust Zimmer enough to roll out some young players on defense and if we step back a little of defense. That's ok.

I don’t know what else you can do to improve the offense via free agency. Top OL rarely hit the market and we’re pretty much locked in at the skill positions and QB. Might be able to sign a Billy Turner for $8m, but I guess I’d rather put that towards a CB or Harris.
