NFL owners, head coaches, and general managers attended the league’s annual four-day meeting in Boca Raton, Florida this past week. Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer was one of this year’s attendees and provided the media with some interesting answers to their questions.

Prospect talk is also continuing to heat up as the 2016 NFL Draft is now less than 40 days away. The speculation and ideas of what Minnesota will do with their first round selection still remains a hot topic among the team’s fans and media.

The new NFL league year began at 4:00 PM eastern yesterday afternoon, allowing all teams to officially sign free-agents to their roster. At 4:01 PM, a mind boggling amount of contract signings had already been agreed upon throughout the entire league.

The Minnesota Vikings were certainly not shy about wanting to improve their roster yesterday. Spots were filled and depth was added as the Vikings are hoping their new players will help the team repeat as NFC North division champions in 2016.

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?

Following the 2012 NFL season, the Minnesota Vikings were excited for what lied ahead in the future for their left tackle Matt Kalil who had just completed his first season in the league. Kalil looked impressive in his rookie season, earning a trip to the Pro Bowl and helping the Vikings clinch a berth into the playoffs.

However, the bright light that was once Kalil’s future with the Vikings has been continuously dimming since his rookie season came to an end. It still remains puzzling as to why his play has significantly decreased since that very first season he played in Minnesota.

Second only to the NFL Draft, the first week of the league’s free agency period is one of the most exciting parts of the NFL offseason each and every year. Sometimes it works out and other times it does not for a team and their expensive new player or players.

It is always fun for fans to hope that their team goes out and signs the top available free agents, but that is not always the best strategy for their favorite team. Some fans need to be more realistic when it comes to who they think their team could sign.

When the free agency period for this upcoming NFL year begins on March 9th, there will be a few players that could land with the Vikings. Who are some of the more realistic options in free agency that could fit with the team in Minnesota?
