5 Players Minnesota Vikings Shouldn't Bring Back Next Season

It's no secret that the Minnesota Vikings are having an abysmal year. Much of that, of course, is due to a coaching staff that looks increasingly likely to leave as the season ends, but some of it is due to team quality.

The Vikings are a much more talented team than their record implies, particularly given the fact that the Vikings would be 9-5 if NFL games were cut off at the 59-minute mark.

But that doesn't mean there are significant albatrosses on the roster that the Vikings need to shed if they want to move forward. Some of these issues are talent-related, while others could best be characterized as "cap casualties."

Regardless, Minnesota is moving forward with a young roster and they may need to get younger in order to get better. That means getting rid of established veterans and taking some chances, which can be a painful process.

On the other hand, the team doesn't have much to lose from a shakeup, either.
