There's no doubt that 2010-2011 has been extremely disappointing for not only Vikings fans, but fans of every professional Minnesota sport.
The Timberwolves again failed to hit 20 wins, the Twins are off to their worst start in franchise history, the Wild missed the playoffs yet again, the Vikings started their 2010 season just like their 2009 season ended, utter failure, and worst of all, the Lynx dropped their season opener despite the arrival of Maya Moore. Things couldn't get any worse.
There is good news for each one of those teams, but it doesn't change the fact that it has definitely been miserable the last year-plus.
With the lockout still looming over the NFL, players have turned to organizing their own workouts. While the Vikings are not getting together like other teams, their players are still working out with other players from around the NFL.
Some good players may be leaving while other good ones are stepping up. Of the remaining players, which ones will have a career year?
*Please note that in order to be considered, players must have completed at least 3 years in the NFL.
