2021 Free Agency Thread NFL/MIN


Recommended Posts

Since signing period is upon on, or had unofficially started, I didn't see a thread to keep discussion of general signings and our hopeful additions rumors. 

I have not yet seen a "top 30" Free Agent from sites, predicted to actually sign with Vikings, and that's another reason I'm not getting my hopes up. 

Minny will surely be linked to the positions of OG, DE, S and DT in free agents, for phase 1, 2 & 3 of free agency.

Anyways, who are your top 5 FA targets for the Vikings.

Mine are:

1.Trai Turner

2. William Jackson

3. Joe Thuney

4. Trey Hendrickson

5. Shelby Harris

I'm not sure if we can afford any of them, and we are probably in play for only 1 bigger name out there.

I'm not sure I'd like the Vikes to be even moderate players in FA.  The little salary cap we have should be used on internal extensions first, O'Neill comes to mind.

Who else is in the final year of their rookie deals?  

I also understand there are a number of FA OGs / OTs on the market and highest bidder gets the guy, right?  So, would it be a stretch to think the Jets, Jaguars, Dolphins and Pats will nab the top-tier talents? 

For goodness sakes, the Vikes are sitting at under $10m in cap space.  17 other teams are sitting there with better than $20M . . . don't waste time competing for services you can't afford from the outside.

Mike Hughes is on the final non-option portion of his rookie contract, but there's next to no chance his deal changes at all. Jayln Holmes and Tyler Conklin are the only others from that draft class still on the roster

Aaron Jones back to GB 4/48, $13 signing bonus, not sure of the guaranteed money. 

Thus far based on that information, looks alrite. Dalvin got $28.2 gaureented on his deal

But then how would Rick justify unfortunately it takes two to tango. But we are fortunate to get "insert tier 3/4 player"
