Minnesota Vikings Free Agency Tracker

Everything you want to know about what's going on in free agency with the Minnesota Vikings can be found right here.

Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

We're getting close to the start of free agency in the National Football League, and with that will come a ton of rumors and speculation, as well as. . .you know. . .actual player movement and signings and stuff.

In order to keep things easy to find, we're setting up this post that will be updated regularly (as well as part of our larger free agency stream) that will track what we've been hearing and what's actually been happening. Hopefully you will find it a helpful resource with what's happening with our favorite football team.

So, here's what we've got for you.

Vikings' Pending In-House Free Agents
Player Position FA Type New Team Story
Matt Asiata RB Restricted Minnesota THREE YARDS AND A CLICK
Joe Berger G Unrestricted Minnesota BACK FOR TWO MORE YEARS
Jasper Brinkley LB Unrestricted Dallas CLICK. YOU KNOW YOU WANT IT.
Dom DeCicco LB Exclusive Rights NOT GONNA TENDER
Vladimir Ducasse G Unrestricted Chicago DU. . .DUCASSE. . .DUCASSE MISSED
Jerome Felton FB Unrestricted Buffalo BUFFALO IS NOW MINNESOTA EAST
Mike Harris OT Restricted Minnesota MIKE MIKE MIKE MIKE MIKE MIKE!
Greg Jennings WR Released/Unrestricted
Charlie Johnson G Released/Unrestricted
Tom Johnson DT Unrestricted Minnesota RIGHT HERE CLICK NOW
Josh Kaddu LB Unrestricted
Cullen Loeffler LS Unrestricted Minnesota BANG IT HERE FOR DETAILS YO
Christian Ponder QB Unrestricted Oakland MUSGRAVE REUNION!!!11!!1!
Josh Samuda G Exclusive Rights
Corey Wootton DE Unrestricted

To my knowledge, the Vikings have not extended qualifying offers to either of their restricted free agents (Asiata or Harris). If they have, I certainly haven't seen anything about it. DeCicco and Samuda are exclusive rights free agents, which means this:

An Exclusive-Rights Free Agent is an NFL player who is not under contract, but has only two years of NFL experience. If his former club makes him an offer at the three year veteran minimum salary, then that's it, he has to take it or leave the NFL. These guys have no right to negotiate with other teams. They are "free" only in the sense that they're free to quit.

If one of the above players re-signs with the Vikings, it will be included in the table above.

Free Agents Signed By The Minnesota Vikings
Player Position Former Team Source Story
Shaun Hill QB Rams Ross Jones Right here
DuJuan Harris RB Packers Aaron Wilson DuJuanna Bet He Doesn't Make The Roster?
Taylor Mays S Bengals Team Right here
Casey Matthews LB Eagles Team Right here
Terence Newman CB Bengals Right here

Obviously, we won't be seeing any names here until after 3 PM Central time on 10 March, when players can officially sign with other teams.
