Minnesota Vikings Free Agency Tracker 2017

Brian Spurlock-USA TODAY Sports

In just a couple of hours, ladies and gentlemen, the official start of NFL Free Agency for 2017 will be upon us. Yes, the "legal tampering" period has been going on for some time, but we have not heard a whole lot concerning the Minnesota Vikings at the present time. However, we will be making this your one-stop shop for everything concerning the purple and gold in free agency for this year.

As we've done in previous years, we have things broken down into a couple of different categories. We'll be giving you everything from our in-house free agents to players the Vikings have signed from other teams and guys that they've released as well. We'll also have our DN Blogger Twitter feed up here as well for your breaking news needs.

With that, here is our free agency tracker for 2017, ladies and gentlemen. Rumors, half-truths, and other innuendo to follow.

UPDATE: According to Chris Tomasson of the St. Paul Pioneer Press, the Vikings may be looking at a veteran backup to Sam Bradford.

UPDATE: A fan favorite might be on his way to the Big Apple, according to Mike Garafolo.

UPDATE: The man they call Doogie thinks that the Vikings are going to get something done fairly quickly after free agency starts, despite their relative silence right now.
