Are the Vikings clearing up cap space for Lamar Jackson?
The Minnesota Vikings and general manager Kwesi Adofo-Mensah might be up to another move this off-season as they are attempting to gain cap space for another move. This is according to Darren Wolfson of SKOR North who was on Twitter responding to a question about the Vikings’ interest in Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson.
Have not heard real. But interesting timing on your tweet to me. Just got a very interesting text from a semi-reliable source about needing to look into the Vikings creating more cap space for some future move. I am following up on that now.

What this potential move could be is anyone’s guess at this point, but the Vikings have been tactical in their attempt to clear cap space. Most notably, in the contracts they have negotiated with newly signed players, they have added void years, which allows them to spread out the cap hit over a longer period of time. This is a common tactic used by NFL teams to create cap space in the short term.
So, what does this all mean? The possibilities are endless, and fans are eagerly speculating about what the Vikings might be up to. Could they be plotting a big trade for a star quarterback, wide receiver, or defensive standout? Or are they simply looking to get their finances in order? Whatever the case may be, one thing is clear: the Vikings are not content to sit still this offseason. With Jackson’s future still in flux, the rumblings won’t change until it’s resolved.
They’re on the hunt for new talent and are taking bold steps to improve their roster for the upcoming 2023 season. We’ll just have to wait and see what they have in store.
