Top available FA list
I know $$ is tight but I wonder if Rick is talking to anyone on this list to provide some veteran insurance since we have so many young players we are depending on for next year. CB, DE, G, etc

Harris signs tender
Good news. Does this take an extension off the table for now?

Good question. This was one sentence within his instagram post. My guess is they are still trying to work out a long term deal, but who knows? Maybe they will table talks until February, but hopefully they're talking even at this moment.
I will let my agents and the Vikings work towards long term certainty in Minnesota, but I am excited to be back for the 2020 season.

The plan could be to move on from Smith in a couple years. All the corners are on rookie contracts so you can pay more for safeties right now.

Harris has developed into a ballhawk and a great all around defender. I'm hoping they can lock him up for the next 4 or 5 years.

I love Anthony Harris, I hope he signs long term...most of the corners we have won't get paid long term for a bit.

Could be, but I just don't think it makes sense to give a big contract to a S who is a back half S, or to a S who is a box S. The guys worthy of big contracts are the rare guys who can do both. I think Harris buys the team a year to get a young guy ready to take his place on a rookie deal unless they somehow find a trade partner.

Rashod Hill is another guy I could see being traded. I was surprised nobody made a run at him. He's been competent in spot duty but I think he'll be buried on our depth chart, potentially even behind Udoh if they like what they see in him.

Why would anyone trade for Rashod who is a back up?

Because there is a lack of competent T depth and he is a competent T, because he is cheap, because he could be had for a late round pick, and because he could be available if he is behind O'neil, Reiff, Cleveland and Udoh...also because somebody could get injured.

The Vikings traded Isidora, who was a backup, for a 7th last year.

I once had high hopes for Isidora the explorer. I hope my high hopes for Bradbury, Samia, Udoh, Cleveland, Brandel and Hinton come to fruition. I'm not greedy just let half of those come through.

If we get an offseason, I'll be fairly optimistic about this OL, 2nd year in the same system and time to replace some of the weaker links. I'd be especially excited for 2021 line play.

I hope it looks like Cleveland, Reiff, Bradbury, Samia and O'Neil
