Prior this offseason, Minnesota appeared to be right up against the 2021 base salary cap, yet that didn’t prevent the team from moving all through free agency.
The Vikings released LT Riley Reiff, TE Kyle Rudolph and K Dan Bailey. At that point, the team made some big splashes, signing DT Dalvin Tomlinson and CB Patrick Peterson. Minnesota additionally signed Xavier Woods, a safety who could apparently be a starter in 2021.
So where does that leave the Vikings regarding salary cap space? After the team consented to terms with Mackensie Alexander and Woods, Minnesota was left with $7.4 million in 2021, per Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. That cap number likewise has Nick Vigil’s agreement added in, per Tomasson.
Remember, Rudolph was given a post-June 1 designation, which means his cap savings won’t be earned up to that point.
