The Vikings entered into the 2021 offseason with seemingly little cap space to work with. But Minnesota cut key veterans, which gave them room to maneuver in free agency.

Now, the Vikings don’t have a lot of cap space to sign a big-ticket free agent, but the team has some space at the moment. According to Over the Cap, the team has a little under $7.5 million in 2021 salary cap space.

Where does that rank them among other NFL teams? As it stands, the Vikings are No. 21 in the NFL for cap space, per Over the Cap.

Keep in mind, Minnesota has a post-June 1 designation on Kyle Rudolph, meaning the cap savings from his release will not be counted on the 2021 salary cap until after June 1.

Right now, the Vikings likely have enough cap space to sign rookies, when you consider the cap savings from Rudolph’s cut. But after that, it’s hard to see how the team could make any big splashes.
