Rick Spielman, Vikings vice president of player personnel, said during a interview on KFAN Radio on Friday that the team's personnel department concluded its meetings Thursday night in preparation for the March 2 free-agency period.
"As you go through this thing, there aren't a lot of big-time names out there," Spielman said. "There are areas where you can get help. We're looking at younger-type free agents that may not be well-known yet but do still have some upside and can definitely come in and help us in all phases. We're looking at special teams guys, we're looking at offensive, we're even looking at some defensive guys. We're finalizing our game plan on how we're going to attack free agency, and again that builds into what is available coming up in the draft as well."
The NFL salary cap is expected to be $109 million in 2007 (up from $102 million) and the Vikings are expected to be around $25 million under the cap.
