The Minnesota Vikings are spending some serious cash this offseason on free gents, from bringing back their own guys like Everson Griffen to bringing in new guys like Linval Joseph, the Vikings are making moves and appear to be nowhere near done.
General manger Rick Spielman spoke this week about the Vikings plans in the offseason moving forward from this point, and noted that the team isn’t done looking until they’re done looking.
“We’ll continue to monitor the market. We’d like to still fill some holes,” Spielman said. “We’re not, by any means, saying we’re completely finished. You don’t know what’s going to happen. There are some guys looking for a lot of money at this point, and a week from now, that could potentially change.”
Obviously, with most oft he top-tier free agents off the board, attention an focus will shift from the free agent pool tot he NFL Draft class in May. The Vikings have the 8th overall pick and could go anywhere from a linebacker to a quarterback or even a trade to the later part of the round.
It’s a new era for the Vikings and while they’re not being splashy with their moves, they’re making them nonetheless.
