Minnesota Vikings: Top 3 Free Agents To Target This Offseason
The Minnesota Vikings ended the 2014 regular season with a 7-9 record. That's a respectable effort for a team who had a rookie head coach in Mike Zimmer, a rookie quarterback in Teddy Bridgewater and without their All-Pro running back Adrian Peterson. Now the hard work really begins.
The Vikings have a number of free agents but none that they need to lose sleep over. Their biggest free agent name is quarterback Christian Ponder and he's aready been replaced with Bridgewater. No loss there then.
However, the Vikings do have some serious questions. Notably what to do with the defense. While the Vikings were ranked 14th in the league for total defense and seventh against the pass with 41 sacks, they were a lowly 24th against the run and only had 13 interceptions. Those are some odd defensive number for sure. You'd think a team who has the seventh overall passing defense and a pass rush that can rack up over 40 sacks would have more than 13 interceptions.
Here are three players the Vikings should target in 2015.
