Agent's Take: Let's connect the dots for 26 teams in NFL FA

Minnesota Vikings

Injuries decimating an already shaky offensive line helped derail Minnesota’s 5-0 start to the 2016 season. Right tackle Andre Smith not panning out last year shouldn’t deter additional attempts by Mike Zimmer to reach back to his days as Cincinnati’s defensive coordinator to take advantage of the connection. Bengals left tackle Andrew Whitworth and right tackle Kevin Zeitler are much more highly regarded as free agents than Smith was last year.

I would love him but I just dont know if I'm comfortable with investing big money into both our guards but having garbage cans for tackles. That's my only issue with signing a big named guard

They will be able to clear 7 million from the LG spot next year if they want to invest big this year in a Guard, but then they'll need a young player to step up at LG.
