The Vikings offense leaves a lot to be desired
The Minnesota Vikings won’t be pursuing hometown boy Eric Decker after the Jets made it known that Decker would be either traded or cut in the coming days. Decker played at Cold Spring High School in Minnesota and then for University of Minnesota so coming back home to the Vikings would have been a nice fit.
The Vikings also need help at receiver. Adam Thielen was their best receiver last year with 69 catches, 967 yards and 5 touchdowns. Certainly not #1 wide receiver numbers. The Vikings are hoping that after a disastrous rookie campaign, their first round pick of 2015, Laquon Treadwell can improve and give Sam Bradford another target. Treadwell caught only 1 pass in 2016 after playing only 5 games.
The Vikings haven’t really addressed their lack of talent in the receiving corps this offseason. They did sign Michael Floyd who split time last season between Arizona and New England, but whether he is the playmaker that Vikings need remains to be seen. Minnesota drafted running back Dalvin Cook in the 2nd round of 2017 draft with hopes that he can also be a receiving threat out of the backfield.
