The offseason for the Vikings has created a mixed reaction among fans.
First came the drafting of Christian Ponder at 12. Many fans were not happy with the pick, but over time, things have settled down.
Just this past week, the Vikings traded for Pro Bowl quarterback Donovan McNabb. While there were again mixed reactions, it seems to be a positive move overall. After all, Ponder hasn't practiced with his new teammates yet, and having him watch a Philadelphia legend at quarterback can only help him.
The Vikings are still over the cap after releasing some players, namely Madieu Williams and Jimmy Kennedy. There are still plenty of moves the Vikings can do to relieve some cap pressure.
In addition to acquiring more cap space, the Vikings still need to fill some glaring holes. The secondary still has question marks and the offensive line is suspect.
In order for the Vikings to protect their new investments, they must start to upgrade positions rather than bandage them up again.
