Minnesota Vikings pre-training camp 53-man roster forecast

Some tough cuts will need to be made for the Minnesota Vikings to reach their 53-player limit for the 2022 NFL season.

Building a roster to compete with the best teams in the NFL is a challenge every team faces every season. The Minnesota Vikings are poised to bring many talented individuals to training camp this year, but many won’t end up qualifying.

Some high-quality players will have to sign with another team or possibly return to the practice squad while others may see their dreams of playing in the NFL come to a screeching halt. Either way, these players need to impress the coaches and staff as much as possible before making any cuts.

Let’s take a look at each position group and see which players are likely to make the Minnesota Vikings’ 53-man roster this year.

Quarters (3)

  • Hall: Kirk Cousins,
  • Backups: Sean Mannion, Kellen Mond

It looks like nothing will change from last year’s quarterback situation at Minnesota. Kirk Cousins ​​will once again be the man for the Vikings and he should look much better in an offense suited to his skills with big guns around him.

There are rumors of an open competition for the backup job behind Cousins. It shouldn’t take much for Kellen Mond to pass Sean Mannion if it was a real battle, but chances are Mannion’s experience and knowledge will be too much for the young quarterback to overcome.

At the moment, there is no fourth quarterback on the roster, making it the easiest position to predict at the moment.
