The Minnesota Vikings have a lot of salary cap space available, so they are expected to be significant players in this year’s free agent market with many areas of need to address.
Someone they sign this offseason may deserve a spot on this list at some point in the future, but for now here are the biggest free agent signings in Vikings’ history.
Cunningham landed with the Vikings in 1997 after being out of football in 1996, and he had the best season of his career (34 touchdowns and 10 interceptions) in 1998 as the team went 15-1 and set a then-league record for points scored in a season.
Williams anchored one of the league’s best run defenses and made three Pro Bowls during his six seasons in Minnesota (2005-2010). Frankly, the Vikings still haven’t found a viable replacement for him.
The Vikings signed Hutchinson to a seven-year, million deal prior to the 2006 season, and he earned four of his seven career Pro Bowl selections during his six seasons with the team along with a spot among the 50 Greatest Vikings.
Winfield spent nine seasons in Minnesota (2004-2012) under three head coaches, and he holds franchise records for tackles in a season (110) and total fumble recoveries in a career (11) by a defensive back.
Favre of course spent most of his career with the rival Green Bay Packers, but he led the Vikings to the NFC Championship Game and had one of his best seasons in 2009 (4,202 yards, 33 touchdowns and a 107.2 passer rating).
