Ranking the 5 Biggest Free-Agent Priorities for the Minnesota Vikings

Minnesota Vikings general manager Rick Spielman went on the record again Thursday, saying at the NFL Scouting Combine that the team had no plans to trade Percy Harvin.

At this point in the year, declarative statements like that only go so far, but for now we'll take Spielman's word for it. No matter what else happens in the 2013 offseason, Harvin's future with the club will have the biggest impact on the team moving forward.

If they keep Harvin and re-sign him to a big deal, they move on with two of the most dominant offensive players in the league. If they decide to cut ties with him at some point, they'll have to hit free agency and the draft with a mindset that has to immediately fill in the gap left by Harvin.

Beyond that, don't expect the Vikings to be very big players in the free-agency market. Spielman's M.O. is to nurture his own, so the priority will be to re-sign their own free agents rather than to over-spend on one of the big-name free agents available.

Here we count down the Vikings' five biggest free-agent priorities for 2013.
