With a dissapointing season under their belt, the Vikings are looking ahead into the off season.
-Re-sign DE Jared Allen: One of the Vikings core players, they can't allow him to slip away in free agency. Allen has been one of the most dominant DEs over the past few years, posting almost 130 sacks over the span of his 10 year career, including a 22 sack campaign in 2011. Allen is a low risk-high reward type player, his worst season posting 7.5 sacks(With Kansas City in '06). The Vikings can't afford to let Jared Allen walk in free agency.
-Draft QB Derek Carr: Unlike Allen, there is quite a risk in taking Derek Carr. However, Carr has a huge upside and could be just the QB the Vikings need. Carr has been great in college for the Fresno State Bulldogs. In the past two years at Fresno, Carr has thrown for at least 4,000 yards, including a tremendous 5,083 yd/50 td 2013 campaign. The Vikings should definitely look into drafting Derek Carr #7 overall.
-Sign Coach Mike Zimmer: Mike Zimmer has transformed the Bengals into a defense powerhouse. Zimmer is a defense mastermind and could turn the Vikings into playoff contenders. With a new quarterback and head coach like Mike Zimmer, the Vikings are sure to have a much better record than this year.
