The Minnesota Vikings suffered a dramatic setback in 2013, finishing 5-10-1 after making the playoffs in 2012 with a 10-6 record.
Several players who were anticipated to have breakout years fell flat, and the team floundered in disappointment all season.
As a result, head coach Leslie Frazier was fired from the club and general manager Rick Spielman has been tasked to find his replacement.
Similar to Frazier, there are players currently under contract in 2014 who are at risk of not returning next season. This could be a result of poor performance, an expensive contract or combination of both.
The following list of players does not include free agents whose contracts expired at the end of 2013, such as Jared Allen, Kevin Williams and Chris Cook.
Let's take a look at five players on the roster bubble for the Vikings heading into the 2014 season.
