The Vikings' offense is reliant upon a lot of 12 and 21 personnel, which is why it's imperative for Minnesota to find a No. 2 receiver to replace Stefon Diggs. A quick breakdown of the Tajae Sharpe signing and what it means.

The Vikings will have an entirely new set of starters at cornerback in 2020, something Mike Zimmer didn't fully anticipate when we talked to him in Indy but is now the team's reality. Minnesota has Mike Hughes, who could be in line to take over in the slot if needed (for Mackensie Alexander) or one of the starting outside spots, Holton Hill and Kris Boyd. MIN will need to address this high in the draft.

Ex-Ravens NT Pierce agrees to join Vikings

Michael Pierce, who went from undrafted rookie to one of the top young run-stuffers in the NFL with the Ravens, has agreed to a deal to join the Vikings, he confirmed on social media.

Trae Waynes leaving Minnesota hardly comes as a shock to the Vikings. The way the free agent cornerback class is assembled always put him in line to earn more than what the Vikings could pay to keep him, which was always going to be north of $10 million per year. Minnesota loses both of its starting corners in Waynes and Xavier Rhodes and has a decision to make with nickel Mackensie Alexander. The turnover was anticipated, which is why the team placed emphasis on CBs in recent drafts.
