NFL free agency starts Tuesday, March 12, and fans of the Minnesota Vikings shouldn't get their hopes up that the team will be signing any big-name players to the roster. The success of last season saw the Vikings improve by seven games from their low of 3-13 in 2011. That improvement came from an effective draft and the addition of free agents that improved the roster.
General manager Rick Spielman has stated that re-signing the players you know the most about is key to being successful in free agency. There have been reports that the Vikings are in contention to sign wide receiver Mike Wallace. The problem with those reports are that the odds of Spielman spending that kind of money on one player in free agency are unprecedented at this point.
That doesn't mean that Minnesota Vikings won't be active in free-agent market, after all, there are more than a dozen free agents from the Vikings' 2012 roster that need to be considered.
Here's a look at what the Vikings need to do in order to continue to build on their success from last season.
