Earlier this offseason, Minnesota appeared to be right up against the 2021 base salary cap, but that didn’t stop the team from maneuvering throughout free agency.

The Vikings released LT Riley Reiff, TE Kyle Rudolph and K Dan Bailey. Then, the team made some big splashes, signing DT Dalvin Tomlinson and CB Patrick Peterson. Minnesota also signed Xavier Woods, a safety who could ostensibly be a starter in 2021.

So where does that leave the Vikings in terms of salary cap space? After the team agreed to terms with Mackensie Alexander and Woods, Minnesota was left with $7.4 million in 2021, per Chris Tomasson of the Pioneer Press. That cap number also has Nick Vigil’s contract added in, per Tomasson.

Keep in mind, Rudolph was given a post-June 1 designation, meaning his cap savings will not be garnered until then. I wouldn’t expect any more major moves in free agency, but with this team, you never know.
