The Minnesota Vikings have more confidence and optimism heading into this offseason than they did a year ago. They have two of the most important pieces in place in head coach Mike Zimmer and Teddy Bridgewater. Also, they improved in several areas from the past season. The Vikings have 12 free agents this offseason, but just one opening day starter.
These two bitter rivals will lock horns at Lambeau Field tonight in a key early-season NFC North showdown.

I am here to tell you to just stop considering that option, because it is not going to be worth it with a high draft pick.
