The following concerns are about recent Minnesota Vikings subject areas, answered by VikingsTerritory. Now is the March 26th version, tackled in a from-the-hip style. If you have thoughts, be sure to electronic mail them to [email protected].
Also, remember to take note: These are view-centered responses. Some solutions will be incorrect from time to time. But we’ll try to preserve that to a bare minimum.
Q: Who can we be expecting the Vikings to indicator future 7 days now that they basically have some cash?
A: The quick response is an offensive lineman, significantly an interior a single.
The workforce has all around $11-$15 million in cap place, though substantially of that will be necessary to indication rookies after the draft. Except if Kevin O’Connell and his team feel they can squeeze a thing out of Garrett Bradbury, Oli Udoh, and Wyatt Davis that the prior routine could not, it would be intelligent to indication a reliable inside offensive lineman.
So, that is our prediction. Possibly yet another cornerback or an offensive lineman.
Q: Who do you think about the ideal FA signing so significantly?
A: Without doubt, Za’Darius Smith was the splashiest signing, but we consider Jordan Hicks is the major benefit-based signing.
One need not fear about Hicks’ injuries keep track of record — as is the scenario for Smith — so Hicks taking over the “Anthony Barr role” will pay back dividends in Minnesota. Hicks is a chief, was regarded “the heart of the Cardinals protection,” and will receive sufficient participating in time.
Give us Hicks on this 1.
Q: What is your official prediction on Patrick Peterson returning for 2022?
A: We formally forecast Peterson will head in other places, not rejoining the Vikings in 2022.
About five times, Peterson stated he preferred to return to the Vikings, but a offer has not been made. He’s most likely much too expensive for Kwesi Adofo-Mensah’s “value” mentality.
If a offer were attainable, it would’ve been finagled by now.
