Minnesota looks to enter free agency with about $5 Million in cap space according to Kevin Seifert of ESPN. The NFL has a new stipulation in the recent CBA that allows a team to rollover cap room from a previous season. The Vikings ended last year with $1.9 Million but that will be mitigated by a reconciliation (not sure exactly what that means. Brett Favre’s previously salary perhaps? They did pro-rate it for over 4 years). So in the end the Vikings will have $5 Million to make moves. That is less than the 15-1 NFC North winning Packers and behind the Bears $25 Million but ahead of the Lions who are right near the cap limit. The Vikings have a lot of work cut out for them entering free agency. This also could indicate that any player with a large cap number may become expendable.
