2012 NFL Free Agents: Wish List for Minnesota Vikings

The Super Bowl is only two weeks away. Shortly after the biggest football game of the year, free agency will begin in the NFL and some big names will be moving around—some that the Minnesota Vikings may want to seriously consider.

The Vikings have 19 players from their 2011 roster that will enter the free-agent market. Though I've already predicted who will stay and go—taking into consideration the very real fact that they could potentially lose some starters in the process, the Vikings might have more holes than they could simply fill through the NFL draft—making free agency very important if they want to return to relevancy in 2012.

Realistically, the Vikings have need on their offensive line, at wide receiver, tight end, middle linebacker, weak-side linebacker, cornerback, safety and at nose tackle. It would be safe to assume that they'll be able to retain some of their free agents, but they must be very active to make sure that the team doesn't go in the opposite direction.

Luckily, this year's class of NFL free agents features plenty of great options for any team to get their fix. The Vikings won't be able to get a marquee player in every position, but with luck and hopefully some hard work by GM Rick Speilman, they'll be able to bring some solid players aboard.

Here's a look at some of the Vikings' options on the upcoming free-agency market.
