Minnesota Vikings: 5 Free Agents Who Could Help the Offensive Line

With the Minnesota Vikings making big changes in their offense this season, the Vikings' offensive line is going to need to make some big adjustments if they don't want a repeat of last season which left Brett Favre pummeled and Adrian Peterson with little room to run.  After the release of Bryant McKinnie, the Vikings filled the spot with Charlie Johnson. 

A major key to the Vikings' success this season will come down to whether or not the Vikings' offensive line can protect quarterback Donovan McNabb and make holes for running back Adrian Peterson.  Without protection, neither of these two key players will be effective, and the vikings will have a tough time keeping up in the NFC North, which is arguably one of the toughest divisions in the NFL.

Head coach Leslie Frazier brought in new offensive line coach Jeff Davidson this season, who has been instructed to install a new head-one blocking scheme rather then the zone scheme that the Vikings have used in previous seasons. 

Here is a look at five free agents who could help the Vikings bolster their offensive line this season, which will make them a much stronger team in the NFC North.
