Minnesota Vikings Free Agents 2023

Last Updated: January 14, 2023
Boardroom takes a look at the NFC North division champion Minnesota Vikings and their upcoming free agents.

The Minnesota Vikings have been a team looking to prove their worth in 2022. This year saw them win the NFC North by four games en route to securing the 3 seed on the NFC side of the bracket. But don’t mistake success for dominance; 11 of their wins were in one-score games. Depending on your perspective, you could say the Vikings are either a good team that makes the necessary plays to edge out wins or a lucky team that will be exposed once the postseason begins.

Either way, Minnesota will have to navigate being over the salary cap once the offseason hits. Key players like receiver Justin Jefferson and running back Dalvin Cook are not headed to free agency this year but will be eligible for extensions next season. So, the Vikings’ front office must get through free agency with an understanding that their young stars will be up for big deals soon.

With that in mind, Boardroom takes a look at the Vikings’ upcoming free agents.
