Mark J. Rebilas-USA TODAY Sports

The Minnesota Vikings have 17 free agents this offseason. With a number of linebackers, are there any that could interest the Jacksonville Jaguars as a Plan B for Bruce Irvin?

Here's a list of all the Vikings free agents this year, according to

Player Position Status Salary
Chad Greenway OLB UFA $4,000,000
Terence Newman CB UFA $2,500,000
Michael Harris LT UFA $1,542,000
Marcus Sherels CB UFA $1,100,000
Andrew Sendejo S UFA $1,000,000
Jason Trusnik OLB UFA $870,000
Casey Matthews ILB UFA $825,000
Matt Asiata RB UFA $800,000
Josh Robinson CB UFA $753,750
Kendrick Ellis DT UFA $745,000
Justin Trattou DE UFA $660,000
Rhett Ellison TE UFA $600,146
Robert Blanton S UFA $577,763
Audie Cole ILB UFA $570,000
Zach Line FB RFA $540,000
Carter Bykowski FB RFA $465,000
Adam Thielen WR ERFA $465,000

Not only is Chad Greenway not #good, but he plays primarily the same position as Telvin Smith, arguably the best player on defense. Terence Newman played fine last season, but he'll be 38 when the season starts. Nope. I wouldn't sign, much less target, anyone in this crop.
