And you thought the NFL season just finished. Actually, the fun is just starting.
The scouting combine is next week and on Feb. 27 free agency will kickoff. While the free-agent crop might make it unlikely the Vikings will spend like they did a year ago, the salary-cap shouldn’t be an issue. The Vikings are currently about $28 million under the $123 million cap for the 2009 season.
That is down slightly from last season when the Vikings entered free agency with more than $30 million in cap space. Minnesota’s cap room for this year could grow depending on any moves made before the free agency period begins that could clear more space.
