Minnesota Vikings Need To Use Cap Space on Wide Receivers
The Minnesota Vikings are heading into the 2013 off-season with $12.3M at their disposal and definitely need to use it on someone who can catch passes from Christian Ponder. In my mind the Vikings would be perfect suitors for Dwayne Bowe who could give the Vikings much needed consistency at the wide receiver position.
Ponder has gotten plenty of ridicule since being drafted with the 12th overall pick in the 2011 NFL draft. Although he isn’t quite where the Vikings would like him to be he did improve in his sophomore season with 2,935 passing yards and 18 touchdowns and 12 interceptions. These numbers are even more impressive given the fact that Percy Harvin led the team in receiving yards and played in just nine games.
I would make the argument that the Vikings are the most needy of a big-play wideout as Harvin is on his way out and they need not waste the career of Adrian Peterson.
If I’m the Vikings I would take a pass on Mike Wallace as the team already has a deep-threat in Jarius Wright who is only 23-years-old and was second on the team averaging 14.1 yards per catch. A consistent wide receiver should be a top priority come March 12th when NFL Free agency begins.
Kyle Rudolph emerged for the team in 2012 with nearly 500 yards and nine touchdowns–giving ponder another threat on the outside would only improve his play and give the Vikings a better chance at winning the NFC North. I think the Vikings will make a splash in the coming months as the Vikings are one wide receiver away from being one of the NFC’s best.
