Finally, this hideous season for the Minnesota Vikings has come to a close.
Analysts like myself can finally look at free agency and the 2012 NFL draft without being scoffed for "giving up on their team."
Before I can do these things, however, it's important to address the cap and roster space needed to make room for new players.
Even before looking at what guys ought to be released by the team, a good starting point for this task is to determine what current free agents the Vikings may or may not re-sign.
Though many of this offseason's free agents are not what you'd call "big names," there are certainly some starters and key contributors that could very well be sporting a different uniform next season.
All of that being said, here are my predictions for what Vikings free agents will be re-signed, and who will not.
