Vikings need to cut Matt Kalil

Our very own Adam Patrick thinks the Minnesota Vikings need to cut Matt Kalil this offseason. He thinks the left tackle is a disappointment and far too expensive to keep in 2016. With a salary cap hit of $11.096 million next season, I can understand those points.

But I think Kalil deserves another shot to prove he’s the team’s long-term left tackle, and I think the strides he made last season warrant that chance. That’s why I’m throwing a challenge flag and asking Adam to join me for another Vikings Territory #CoinToss! We’ll duke it out, blog-style, and hopefully, I frustrate Adam to the point where he wants to knock my hat off my head.

Here we go! Adam, state your case, convince me that Kalil should be gone!

Next week, the Minnesota Vikings and every other team will find themselves in the middle of the NFL’s free agent extravaganza. This week saw plenty of teams releasing an assortment of big name players.

The Vikings have until March 9th before the players on their current roster will have their 2016 contracts become guaranteed. Will the Vikings be the next team to release a player or players who could give them some more money to spend this offseason?

As a three-year starter in the Buckeyes’ secondary, Tyvis Powell was often the forgotten man on a defense loaded with talent. Powell has the size and athleticism teams covet at the safety position, plus the knack for making timely big plays. He led the team with three interception in 2015 and finished third in tackles with 71. Powell’s leadership and energy played a key part in a secondary that was ranked sixth in the FBS in pass efficiency defense and second in fewest points allowed (15.1).

The Minnesota Vikings are on a pre-free agency roll this Saturday, signing multiple players to new contracts. Strong safety Andrew Sendejo was the first, and now, it looks as though defensive tackle Kenrick Ellis will be in Minnesota through 2016. According to reports from USA Today’s Tom Pelissero, Ellis has agreed to a one-year deal with the Vikings.

Ellis originally signed with the Vikings in October 2015 after the team placed Shamar Stephen on Injured Reserve. “I’m happy to be here, and I’m going to take advantage of my opportunities,” Ellis said after his first practice. “I think I’ll fit in fine with the scheme. I like to be physical around the line of scrimmage and run to the ball.”
